The Digital Youth Council is asking young people in Ireland for their opinions on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) with a new app that allows them to express their views.

Released on 11 November, the DYC HaveYourSay App allows users to send their opinions to the council via their smartphone and tablet devices. The findings will be used to help the council publish reports.

Established by 16-year-old tech entrepreneur Harry McCann, along with the help of Ciaran Cannon TD and Bernard Kirk, the Director of the Galway Education Centre, the Digital Youth Council is made up of the 12 young people in Ireland, including Google Science Fair winners, BTYSE winners, Junior Eircom Spider winners and more. It was set up with the aim of gathering young people in Ireland's views on STEM to express them to various government departments and tech companies.

The DYC HaveYourSay App – which was developed by council members Cormac Kinsella and Cian Martin Bohan – is available as a free download from the Android Play store, Apple App store and Windows store.
