Mind Lab

​On a recent visit to the Mind Lab, chief executive Frances Valintine told Idealog she believes we've lost some of our number eight wire mojo as a country – and that it's going to take work to get our curriculum up to date and youngsters on the road to tech-oriented careers. For starters, teachers need upskilling, technology needs to be extracted from the 'ICT' pigeonhole and parents need to stop short-selling their daughters.
