I had the great pleasure to again be a judge at the Melbourne edition of the Young ICT Explorers competition.
Young ICT Explorers is a non-profit competition created by SAP the global market leader in enterprise application software. The aim of the competition is to encourage school students from Years 3 to 12 to create their best Information and Communication Technology (ICT) related projects.
The competition’s aligns nicely with the new Digital Technologies curriculum and enables students to apply what they learn at school to develop a technology related project of their choice. Students have the opportunity to present their project to a judging panel of academia and ICT industry professionals who make a judgement on the bases of creativity, uniqueness, quality, level of difficulty and project documentation.
It is so inspiring to see what these talented young students have been able to achieve as they have developed their coding skills. As I said to the audience of students, parents, teachers, judges and competition organisers, the future of the world is in great hands with this inspiring young people.
