After-school activities are FREE – no charge, zip, nothing-o! All sessions are rigorously in keeping with Garda Vetting and Children First Legislation guidelines.
We’ve activities online and in person. See 2023 Teen-Turn Opportunities
Teen-Turn supports girls from DEIS and affiliate secondary schools in Cork, Dublin, and Limerick as well as through specific programming in Carlow, Galway, Longford, Mayo, Roscommon, Sligo and Tipperary to take part in our extracurricular activities.
By working on curriculums that bring participants through BT Young Scientist, SciFest and the Global Technovation Challenge, participants learn how to develop projects that can lead to enterprise, be it a technology product or scientific discovery.
If participants then wish to take their projects further, to see if what they’ve developed can become a business, we offer term-break incubator and development camps.
As Gaisce Challenge Partners, our activities also count towards achieving The President’s Award.
Participants must sign up through the online submission here and arrive with a signed parental/guardian consent form.
Every year there are several teams in our afterschool who produce work that could go into production/to market or, at the very least, be developed into a minimal viable product.
Get to know our partner companies during term breaks to take part in a series of workshops where you will design think and problem solve your way through the latest innovations.
We are proud to be one of Technovation’s Regional Ambassadors, which comprises a global cohort of over 110 organizers from around the world. We have been delivering the Technovation curriculum in Ireland since 2017! (And as a bonus Teen-Turn sessions count toward Gaisce!)
Project Squad invites teen girls to create a science fair project, in keeping with the requirements of both SciFest and BT Young Scientist.
