Enabling everyone in our community to Think Big.
Amazon Web Services in partnership with South Dublin County Council have provided a Think Big Space in Tallaght. Such spaces are designed to provide young people from local communities a place beyond the classroom to explore and cultivate an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths (STEAM) disciplines.
The mission is to afford young people an opportunity to engage in a range of STEAM experiences while enabling them to Think Big - to become the confident, creative, collaborative, risk-taking & innovative leaders of tomorrow - to discover the power of digital technology and how they may harness it to shape the world.
