From basic digital literacy to advanced computer science, digital skills are often out of reach for the young people who need them most. In a world being transformed by technology, ICON is in agreement with Microsoft’s philosophy that youth should have the opportunity to develop the creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills gained by learning computer science. Therefore, together, Microsoft and ICON intend to close this partition and secure the fate of the next generation and the fate of the worldwide economy.

ICON will lead a dynamic, convincing and energizing arrangement of sessions to illuminate and instruct understudies from everywhere throughout the Maltese Islands on work, professions in innovation and business with workshops and tutoring headed by specialists in the field.
