Liberty IT runs student workshop STEM event

  • Liberty IT's STEM committee hosted students from Bloomfield Collegiate School and Wallace High School this week to their Belfast offices for a series of workshops.

    Students from two schools attended workshops on Amazon Web Services, Spring Boot, and Virtual Reality this week as part of Liberty IT's ongoing programme of STEM outreach. The recent event saw 25 lower sixth pupils attend workshops and talks from Liberty IT professionals to learn more about the work done internally at the company.

    STEM Ambassador at Liberty IT, Amy Hollinger, said: "Our workshops provided an opportunity for pupils studying software and systems development at AS-Level to visit our offices and engage with Liberty IT teams to gain an understanding of how we work as an organisation and the different roles that consist of our units."

    “The aim is to inspire and foster the next generation of IT talent through our educational institution partnerships to encourage pupils to continue a career in science, technology, engineering and mathematical careers. We also have scholarship opportunities for first year students that are studying software engineering, computer science or an IT related discipline working with us for a summer after the first year of their course.”
