Every tank does some good

We are committed to making a positive and lasting contribution to people’s lives by investing in our local communities. We believe that effective education including science, technology, and maths will help foster bright young talent in our Irish communities, giving our children the opportunity for a brighter economic future.

In the Community

We know that education is very important to Irish families and to local communities. So we feel passionately about making a meaningful contribution in that area.

Every time you make a purchase at an Inver station, we’ll make a donation to think tank. At Inver, we call it fuel for thought.

Fuelling young minds with technology

Total contributions to date:

Inver’s think tank currently sponsors two educational initiatives to inspire our children to be excited about maths, science and technology and the opportunities that will be available to them with that knowledge. These are Techspace and Creative Techfest. Our funding helps these organisations provide children with fun learning opportunities within our local schools and our communities.

Techspace

TechSpaces are creative places for young people from all backgrounds to learn how to create invent and inspire with technology. Young people explore skills such as coding, robotics, gaming and digital media for free in their local community youth projects. Inver sponsor TechSpace in locations around our Service Stations and really enjoy playing a role in inspiring tomorrow’s creators, inventors and makers.

Techspace trains and supports educators to provide young people with access to creative technology and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths) programs. Educators then open up a “TechSpace” in their youth centre. At a “TechSpace” young people are inspired to create, produce and have fun with digital technology – becoming creators, inventors, and makers with technology, rather than consumers of technology.

Creative Tech Fest

This is an annual event for the new generation of creators, inventors and makers, aged 10+ years to exhibit an amazing array of creative technology projects they create throughout the year.

It is an annual celebration and exhibition of all the amazing content created by young people from across the country who participate in the TechSpace Program.
