DICE TY Academy

Following on from and building on Letterkenny Institute of Technology's DICE - Design, Innovation Creativity and Enterprise Annual Conference, staff in the Department of Design and Creative Media at LYIT have designed DICE_TY Academy. An engaging and motivating initiative, inspiring a group of 15-16 year olds from around Donegal to believe in creativity and entrepreneurship as key characteristics of their futures.

This year Dice_TY Academy brings together 100 Transition Year students from five different schools, to come up with new ideas to create a product, service or experience that can be used (and sold!) at Malin Head, the breath-taking northern-most point in the county. Students follow a custom design thinking process developed by LYIT entitled UNIQUE. The students receive workshops and interactive lectures to guide them through the process.
