Well done to all the Drogheda students who entered the Drogheda Young Innovators Competition. We got a great response and some excellent innovative ideas. We are holding a workshop for all students who entered and any students interested in innovation on Saturday 25 January here at The Mill.
We will be announcing a shortlist of entrants and providing details on the next steps; the judging criteria and – most importantly the prizes!
We will also have a number of guest speakers, including:
- Shane Curran – Runner up in this year’s Young Scientist Exhibition and winner of 2013 Junior Dragon’s Den.
- Laura Armada Buch – Local entrepreneur who set up LAB fitness and who will reveal all her secrets of success.
- Simon Mc Cormack – Managing Director of Western Motors and President of the Drogheda Chamber of Commerce who is going to present on business enterprise and encouraging people to consider a career in entrepreneurship.
It promises to be a very interesting and exciting morning for Drogheda’s Young Innovators. We look forward to meeting all of the shortlisted students there.
