Tech Week is Ireland’s nationwide festival of technology aimed at students, parents and the public. Tech Week is made up of a range of classroom and community activities taking place across Ireland – in libraries, schools, community centres and many other locations. These activities give students a chance to develop their interest in technology subjects, examine potential career prospects, learn new skills, be creative and, most importantly, have lots of fun. Midlands Science works with partners to deliver a range of relevant events during this exciting annual week in the academic diary.
During Tech Week 2022 we offered a range of free career workshops to secondary schools across the midlands. These career talks linked working professionals from the Tech industry with second level students. Students got to hear first hand about jobs in the industry, the challenges and benefits to the role and what they can do right now to help them get into the industry in the future. We are very grateful to have such fantastic speakers volunteering their time for our schools as these talks are so import to give students visibility of STEM careers.
