• Helping Educators/Youth Leaders to be more informed about the vibrant tech sector and the roles available in Ireland.
• Inspiring young people to have fun with technology and to find subjects that interest them.
• Providing clear information to students & their educators/leaders on the pathways available including apprenticeships.
• Helping young people to dispel any barriers they have of themselves & increase their understanding of tech roles.
