The CareerMash Youth Tech Jams have inspired students to dream and share their ideas on the global digital revolution

via CareerMash

On May 11, 2012, 300 GTA high school students will gather at the Ontario Science Centre to give voice to their opinion on the direction we should go in, as a global digital society. Some of the GTA's brightest students will talk tech with each other, and companies on site to display their most exciting projects and opportunities.

Throughout the month of April, CareerMash has hosted seven Youth Tech Jam sessions throughout Southern Ontario. There, they discussed questions and issues facing society, and how technology can help solve these problems. On May 11, the ideas they came up with will be voted on, and the best will be sent forward to industry decision makers at the World Congress on Information Technology in Montreal this October.

In addition to identifying what they feel is important as then next generation of employees and consumers, attendees will hear presentations on career opportunities in the field of technology, listen to a keynote address from Geneviève L'Espérance -- a 19-year-old one-woman powerhouse for all things tech who wants to take Fem Geek global -- and visit exhibitor booths showcasing what exciting projects and career opportunities are out there.


If your company would like the chance to interact with the next generation of innovators, contact Melanie Wood for more information.
