DreamSpace Set to Inspire Next Generation Through Technology
When it comes to education, STEM is at the fore of the conversation.
Getting more of our young people involved in the fields of Science, Technology, Education and Mathematics is a priority in ensuring our tech stars of tomorrow have the necessary skills to shine. The Irish Government has pledged to make Ireland the leader in STEM education by 2026; a bold target, but one that can be achieved with the right approach and resources.
When it comes to educating our students about the possibilities that technology holds, we need to do more than just tell them about it- we need to show them. Students need to be motivated, excited and hands-on. This is why Microsoft has invested €5 million to create DreamSpace, an immersive educational hub that was proudly unveiled yesterday at their new campus at One Microsoft Place in Leopardstown.
To signal lift-off at DreamSpace, Microsoft hosted Minister Richard Bruton and sixty students from St. Laurence’s Boys National School in Stillorgan and Transition Year students from Coláiste Bhaile Chláir, Claregalway. They were the first of the 100,000 students who will participate in the DreamSpace experience over a four-year period that will inspire, excite and educate students about the boundless opportunities technology offers.
