JCT Post Primary STE(A)M in Junior Cycle 2020 Technology, Research and Innovation - choices for the future

STE(A)M in Junior Cycle

Technology, Research and Innovation – Choices for the Future

Big data has liberated research.  Through the use of large databases and advanced AI researchers can save time, save resources and even save lives.  Mobile computing, intelligent robots, self-driving cars, neuro-technological enhancements and genetic editing are ubiquitous.  During these workshops we will explore some recent developments emerging from research.  We will explore who controls the research agenda while considering some of the dilemmas which occur when research and innovation collide with societal issues.  “Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have the right to do and what is right to do”.  (Potter Stewart)

Partners: Amgen Biotech Experience and ADAPT.

The world is changing at a rapid pace.  In order to respond to the emerging challenges of our future, we need to empower our young people to think, choose and innovate in ways that will enhance and sustain our lives, communities and world, now and into the unknown tomorrow.  It is on this premise that the theme for STE(A)M in Junior Cycle 2020 - "SOLUTION GENERATION" is based.
