Earlier this year 4 kids from the Glasgow based British Youth IT College namely Dhruv Maheshwari, Sunny Jadhav, Manik Khadiya and Ali-Hassan Gondal and their Mentor Dr Rashmi Mantri have participated in a Digital Challenge called #DigiInventorsChallenge. Our Team’s project is named as Young Scots Keep Active.
The DHI are delighted to announce that Young Scots Keep Active have been shortlisted as finalists to take part in this year’s #DigiInventorsBootcamp.
The Bootcamp will be taking place at the University of Strathclyde’s Technology & Innovation Centre on Monday-Tuesday the 17-18th of September.
The Bootcamp will give your team the opportunity to come face-to-face with their fellow competitors, develop new skills in our Bootcamp masterclasses, and meet industry experts!
Most importantly your team will work with each other to develop a powerful business pitch that sells your idea to our panel of judges.
The #DigiInventorsChallenge 2018, in association with Andy Murray and the Digital Health & Care Institute, is on a mission to find smart new ways to help Scotland’s young people keep active, eat well and stay healthy mentally and physically, now and in the future.
Teenage groups of 4-6 could have participated to get creative, and help build Scotland’s latest digital health invention. This challenge will help young people develop entrepreneurial and creative skills, as well as provide an excellent opportunity to prepare for a career in Scotland’s growing digital economy.
The winning team will not only win a fantastic technology prize (last year’s finalists won an Apple watch), but will also have the chance to meet Andy Murray himself!
