IN EDUCATION
Siemens are not new to the Education arena, and have been involved in this sector for over two years. We have endowed two schools with Computers, one in Coolderry, Co. Laois, the other in  Killinarden, Tallaght in 1997. These two schools became two of the phase II  members of the ‘Classroom of the  Future’ project. Both of the schools were suitable recipients of the endowment, one being in a rural area, the other  in an urban area.

Siemens also sponsor Computer Gym (the mobile computer classroom) by providing the latest Siemens  Multimedia Personal Computers and a server to each of the six trucks which tour the country. The mobile units are hired out to schools and other educational institutions to provide extra computing power together with specialist teachers.

 In 1998 Siemens agreed with the National Centre for Technology in Education to become a partner in the Dublin Inner City Schools Computerisation project, (DISC). The 20 schools in the project received two computers each from Siemens. The other partners in DISC are the Dublin Institute of Technology and the Dublin Inner City  Partnership. Siemens not only provides technical support to the project but also time as Brendan Supple, Division Manager, Information and Communication Products, Siemens is on the Board.
