The young people on the Future Creators programme met with Google Dublin staff who shared with them their experience of working with the company.
The Future Creators learned about:
Googles history and community spirit
How the Google Search engine works
Googles access programme and how Google is planning to develop high-speed wireless networks in Africa
The new innovative and disruptive technologies that Google is working on such as the Google self-driving car and Google lens to monitor diabetes
Established in 2011 by The Digital Hub and delivered in conjunction with National College of Art and Design and H2 Learning, the Future Creators programme aims to equip young people (aged 13 to 16 years old) from Dublin 8 with digital skills, including coding, app development, digital photography, filmmaking, and website development. The programme also works to enhance their exposure to STEM subjects and to build their confidence, so they may consider pursuing a career related to digital skills.
