The Theme: Innovation of Speed

This edition is centered around the Bloodhound SSC themed “Innovation and Technology of Speed” which will challenge youngsters to think and get hands on providing ICT based solutions.

The youth being the leaders of the future, it’s up to them to dream and build the future that they want to see tomorrow.

At the end of the programme, the participants must see more value of the the Bloodhound SSC programme and come up with tech solutions that will bring about change in the province.

Throughout the programme, the participants will build mobile apps, web applications, electronic/robotic systems, graphic solutions and business cases.
