About the ‘STEAM’ Challenge - Putting the 'A' into STEM Education


DCU & Intel STEAM Challenge Hackathon Weekend want DCU students to explore their artistic and creative sides in combination with “STEM” (Science – Technology – Engineering – Math) skillsets to generate new exciting and innovative experiences or products.

We want students to show us how the Arts can interact with technological creativity by blending music, visual arts, performance arts and fashion with enabling technology.

Students will explore these artistic themes in diverse teams to create Aesthetic Objects, Environments or Experiences that improve the lives others, underpinned by Intel Technology.




About Intel in Ireland

Ireland is Intel's centre of manufacturing excellence in Europe. Since 1989, Intel has invested $13.9 billion, turning 360 acres of the Collinstown Industrial Park into the most advanced industrial campus in Europe.

Over the past 27 years, Intel in Ireland has come to represent a diversity of activities across the spectrum of Intel business from advanced manufacturing to cutting-edge research and design. Today, Intel has 4,900 employees across Ireland.

The majority of the Intel workforce in Ireland are based at the Leixlip campus in County Kildare which is the location for Intel’s hi-volume, advanced manufacturing facilities which is currently producing 14nm process technology on 300mm wafers. There are also a number of Intel employees located in Intel in Shannon which is a core European R&D site for Intel’s Communications and Intelligent Systems businesses. Ireland is also home to a number of research, development and design activities and in September 2016 Intel announced the acquisition of Movidius, a Dublin company that is a world leader in Machine Vision Technology, providing visual intelligence to the next generation of connected devices.




Exploring STEAM

The world around is changing at an almost unbelievable pace. Computing, for example, is being transformed and embodied in our daily lives in ever changing ways bringing with it an explosion in data creation, storage and analytics. A simple example illustrates the point - it’s estimated that by the year 2020 a single autonomous car will generate more internet traffic per day than the average family of 5 people would in an entire year.

As the complexity of this ever changing world increases, we will need to continually challenge ourselves to think in new and different ways. The problems we will be called upon to solve in the future will require a different kind of approach and will draw on skills and experience from multiple disciplines. The skills of the workforce of the future will depend as much on curiosity, creation and design, as they will on technical aptitude. And traditional STEM may not be enough. That is why we are interested in exploring the the value of STEAM; the intersection between creative arts and the traditional STEM areas of Science, Tech, Engineering and Maths.
