Summer Camps

UCD Innovation Academy are hosting the first UCD Innovation Summer Camp on campus at University College Dublin in the O' Brien Centre for Science from 26th-30th June 2017.

This week-long camp is open to current senior cycle secondary school students and to those who are entering senior cycle.

It will have a strong emphasis on learning by doing. Participants will learn about and experience creative problem solving approaches such as Design Thinking; actively engage in a series of individual and group learning challenges and hackathons and use new technology including Virtual Reality and 3D Printing to support the learning process.

Please circulate details of the UCD Innovation Summer Camp to any senior cycle students or members of your staff (TY Coordinators, Guidance Councillors, Year Heads) and parents who may be interested. For further information and to book a place please see

This camp is part of an initiative announced by Minister for Education and Skills Richard Bruton T.D. as part of the Action Plan for Education and is supported by the Higher Education Authority.
