Intel Ireland today, March 10th, launched ‘The Intel Youth Enterprise Programme’ in collaboration with the Lions Club Ireland. This programme which is hosted by Tullamore Lions Club comprises of a two day “ideation” training camp to be held in Tullamore on March 20th and 21st and is designed to educate transition year students in the art of ideation, entrepreneurship and customer driven innovation.
Speaking at the launch, Brendan Cannon, Corporate Affairs Director, Intel Ireland said “Through immersing themselves in this learning experience these transition year students will have the ability to find improve their creative capacity and learn how to identify problems and build ideas into tangible concepts, prototypes and ventures that can be progressed and commercialised.”
Intel’s involvement in the programme has been to create a curriculum based on best in class theory and practice related to innovation and ideation. It has been condensed into an interactive hands-on practical experience where the participants are in charge of their own learning. This on-line training platform will make the programme sustainable and capable of being run by any Lion’s Club in Ireland or throughout the Lions Global network.
International President of the Lions Club, Dr Wing-Kun Tam, who is in Ireland for the launch said “I am very excited about this project. I have no doubt it will be a great success and my hope is that we can expand it to other Lions Clubs throughout Ireland and indeed ultimately into our global network.”
In addition to the International President, the launch was attended by Lion’s Club Presidents from all over Ireland as well as District Governor Sean Sandford and some teacher’s students from the transition year class who will be participating in the ideation camp.
