SAP Expands Youth Innovation Program Across Australia
Program will now take place in New South Wales, Victoria, Australian Capital Territory, Tasmania, Queensland and Western Australia
SAP has expanded its flagship youth innovation program, the Young ICT Explorers (YICTE) competition, across six states and territories to meet the increasing appetite for technology innovation among young Australian students.
This year, in partnership with Digital Careers, events will take place across New South Wales, Victoria, Australian Capital Territory, Tasmania, Queensland and Western Australia. This expansion is in direct response to the demand for education programs of this type, and due to the extraordinary turn out for the competition.
In 2014 520 students entered 234 projects – all competing to become the best Young ICT Explorer in their region. YICTE is designed to encourage Australian youth to create and innovate with ICT while promoting greater understanding of the real-life applications of technology and the career paths it enables.
