About Generation Tomorrow Programme

Generation Tomorrow, ESB’s STEAM education programme, aims to help young people develop key skills like creativity and critical thinking skills through supporting programmes, like TechSpace, that encourage curiosity and discovery.

Both TechSpace and ESB's Generation Tomorrow Programme aim to provide empowerment and opportunity to young people in STEAM and digital creativity in their education.

They help them not only to become creative and innovative problem solvers, but also active and engaged citizens, capable of making informed choices to tackle climate change and other global challenges.

Check out the animation #flipthescript below. It features a rap voiced by 11 year old TechSpacer Shaun Samra, better known as MC Samra, from Finglas.

It captures what TechSpace means to young people, and how it helps them use technology to unleash their potential through things they are already passionate about.
