The F1 in Schools challenge, powered in Ireland by the Irish Computer Society, is a response to a recognised skills shortage in computing and engineering, with technology courses having experienced a significant decline in CAO applications over the past number of years.. "The Discover Science and Engineering Programme (DSE) supports the F1 in Schools Challenge as a fantastic way in which to engage second-level students and encourage them to develop their creativity, problem-solving and innovation skills.. Such initiatives can ignite their passion for science and technology, which is vital in attracting them to take up third level courses in these subjects.. DSE is delighted to work with the Irish Computer Society in encouraging these students to make CAO choices relating to science and technology that will help us address skills shortages, particularly in the areas of computing and engineering..
