The Digital Hub's Future Creators Graduation and Showcase took place this week in NCAD, Dublin. Communications Minister Denis Naughten attended and met the new generation of Digital Native Graduates. 

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, robotics, social media, digital photography and filmmaking.

The Digital Hub, Ireland's largest cluster of digital media, technology and Internet businesses, supports the actions recommended in the STEM Education in the Irish School System Report, to formally recognise and integrate informal STEM (Science, Technology, Education and Mathematics) learning programmes, into the curriculum in Irish schools.
