The PACT programme is a partnership between researchers in Maynooth University’s Department of Computer Science and teachers at primary and post primary schools around Ireland. Our overall goal is to develop a primary and secondary level curriculum for computational thinking which moves beyond programming and algorithms.

Computational Thinking is about combining the creativity of human thinking with the power of computing machines to solve problems across a range of disciplines. The focus is not on learning facts about computers but on developing creative ideas and solutions to real-world problems. This develops a core skill which is crucial to a range of 21st century careers, such as information technology, physics, finance, engineering and bioinformatics.
