On Wednesday April 6th several volunteers from the Learning Hub were delighted to be involved with the ITLG Young Innovators exhibition. Hundreds of secondary school students from all over Ireland attended the exciting event at Shannon Airport. There were two central aims to the day. The first was to develop the innovative and entrepreneurial skills of students such as problem solving and opportunity finding. The second was to ignite a passion among young people for the fascinating world of technology. Students were divided into teams which we then had the pleasure of mentoring for the day. The challenge presented to these bright young students was to consider life in the year 2066. How would the areas of work. travel, play, shopping, learning and living evolve in the coming 50 years? It was a fantastic experience that really showed how bright the future is for the current generation. Throughout the day there were several stimulating speeches. One speech that was certainly a highlight came from a young innovator named Emily Duffy. At the age of 15 Emily invented a “Homeless Wrap”, a specially designed sleeping bag that is helping homeless people not only on a national level,but is now being used to aid refugees affected by the Syrian crisis. A truly inspiring message to all young people at the event that age is just a number and should never hold you back. An exceptional day was had by all, and thank you to ITLG for having us!
