On Wednesday 30th November 2016, Minister Mary Mitchell-O’Connor, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, attended the closing session of an 8-week Enterprise Bootcamp in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and  Mathematics) in the Studio in dlr LexIcon.

The initiative was a collaboration between dlr Libraries and Local Enterprise Office (LEO) DLR.  The aim of the project was to develop student STEM skills by introducing them to the practical uses and possibilities of new creative technology while promoting problem-solving and entrepreneurial skills.

Students from Cabinteely Community School, Dominican College Sion Hill; St. Joseph of Cluny Secondary School, Killiney; Loreto College, Foxrock; Rathdown Senior School; Rosemont School; St. Killian’s Deutsche Schule and St. Raphaela’s Secondary School participated in the project.
Well done to all involved!
