They met with pupils and teachers who showed them the different projects they are working on.
Following that, Commissioner Kroes and Lord Puttnam visited The Digital Hub - an ambitious digital skills programme established by the Irish Digital Hub Development Agency (DHDA) in partnership with the National College of Art and Design in Ireland (NCAD) - to find out more about Future Creators.
The programme is aimed at developing young people’s digital media skills and, ultimately, encouraging them to consider a career in digital media or technology. Participants – all aged between 13 and 16 – learn skills such as coding, film-making, app development and computer programming.
