The Computer Clubhouse is part of a global network of 105 Clubhouses. The network was established in 1993 by the Boston Museum of Science in collaboration with the MIT Media Laboratory, and it represents best practice in education and after-school learning environments. Seed funding from the Intel Foundation has helped the network develop globally.
The Clubhouse in The Liberties area is one of two in Ireland with another located in Blanchardstown. The Clubhouse model has also inspired two additional technology enabled learning centres in Limerick and Dublin. Each is run independently.
