Skills studio for children to launch soon in Dublin
Published 30/04/2014 | 02:30
Sky is to open an Academy Skills studio in Dublin to give students of school age the chance to make their own TV programmes.
It follows the success of a similar studio in London, which has been used by 14,000 young people since opening in 2012. The students are aged between eight and 18.
Those taking part in Sky's programme will film a TV news report on subjects they are studying on the curriculum.
Schools can choose from a range of topics across five subject areas: maths, English, science, citizenship and PE.
Sky has not yet given a date for the opening of its Dublin skills studio, but it is expected to be soon.
