The ICS Foundation advocates for and promotes digital inclusion, ICT in education for teaching and learning, the teaching of technology in education and represents the IT profession in Ireland.
We do this through our industry, education and community networks and by forming partnerships, alliances and associations with coalitions whose philosophy and goals resonate with our own.
Tech Week, organised by the ICS, is Ireland’s nationwide festival of technology aimed at students, parents and the public. Tech Week is designed to inspire students to engage actively with STEM subjects, and also to educate all citizens – of every age group and background – about the challenges and rewards of our fast-changing technological society. Over 100,000 participants from around Ireland took part in Tech Week 2016. The culmination was a grand finale held at The RDS, attended by more than 600 people, including students, scouts, members of the public and government officials. In its fourth year, Tech Week 2017 promises to be just as exciting!
