YICTE 2014 Canberra

Congratulations to all participants of the inaugural ACT Young ICT Explorers! 80 students from 10 schools entered the challenge, delivering 33 high quality projects. We hope everyone pulled a few words of wisdom from Andrew Clapham’s keynote speech – most importantly the importance of what he called ‘cool tech’ – those exciting moments when knowing how to code can lead to amazing business ideas. Great work Canberra – the judges were very impressed and noted the high quality of all entries! This year’s awards went to:
