Powering Transformation provides an outstanding opportunity for young people to take part in a workshop which will help develop their skills, extend their thinking and raise their academic aspirations.


Powering Transformation is a fully funded, one day workshop developed by The Talent Foundry and run in partnership with Dell. The workshop offers students the chance to use Dell technology to address a collaborative problem-solving challenge with a focus on local social issues that affect their local communities.


Taking place at a local university, the students have the chance to engage with Dell mentors and university student ambassadors, offering them a key insight into both the technology sector and the world of higher education.
