"We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future".
Franklin D. Roosevelt 

"What excites you most about 'Excited?'" 

This is one of the questions we asked people when some of the Radio TY team visited Dublin Castle to  attend the 'Excited' Digital Learning Conference 2014. This conference was about listening to, and learning from students. There were several primary schools there who took part in a junior dragons den. We had the privilege of interviewing them. This was part of a behind the scenes footage project we worked on from early morning until the afternoon and hen showed after Junior dragons den. I found it strange hearing and seeing myself on television but really enjoyed interviewing.

Here are some of the pictures from the exciting day in Dublin castle:

I would like to thank everyone involved in excited and to the Youth Media Team for letting us join them, we really enjoyed ourselves and we all learnt a lot from each other. It was a wonderful learning experience for all and I hope to go on more innovative adventures with RTY in the future. 

Aoife and I interviewed Dr Ruth Freeman, Director of Programmes, Enterprise and International Affairs at the Science Foundation of Ireland. Ruth spoke to us about gender expectations and how they affect the career path we want, just to fit in. I found Ruth to be a very inspirational lady and someone to look up to for her achievements and friendly personality.

Thanks for reading/listening/visiting,

That's all for now,

Lauren :)
