Project Squad returns to The Digital Hub

The Digital Hub and Teen-Turn have joined forces again this year for the afterschool programme Project Squad.

Girls from throughout Dublin will work on science projects that will be presented at SciFest in December as well as entered into BT Young Scientist. Participants will learn how to develop projects that can lead to enterprise, be it a technology product or scientific discovery.
