  • Solution mindedness
  • The future of work
  • Helping them to make subject choices at school
  • Positioning their mainframes for a future that competes with the rest of the world, and not just South Africa!

What is it?

 

The xTech.Institute 5-week program consists of 3 phases:

Phase 1 - Full immersion day

A jam-packed day with a structured itinerary that guides future leaders through the capabilities of exponential technologies. Program robots, connect IoT devices, make crypto transfers, learn some code, see the power of infinite computing, get a glimpse of digital biology, hack a console.

World-renowned entrepreneurs facilitate each of the sessions and construct challenges for learners to solve.

Phase 2 - decentralised, digital collaboration

Teams that were formed in phase 1 collaborate to consume our curated digital content. Some of the titles include:

The basics of business

Design thinking

Customer centricity

Digital delivery

Convincing others of your good idea

How to do a great pitch

Public speaking

Solution-mindedness

Teams work together digitally to create a viable solution pitch to tackle a grand societal problem such as poverty, housing, government corruption, traffic, potholes, adult literacy, access to clean drinking water, sanitation, low crop yields.

Phase 3 - Pitch day

Teams return to xTech.Institute to deliver their solution architecture in person. A panel of technology experts, corporate partners and entrepreneurs evaluate pitches and provide constructive feedback to teams on their solutions and pitches.

Individuals stand a chance to be selected for internships with entrepreneurs and corporate partners.

Viable solutions will be considered for actual funding.

Youngsters leave xTech.Institute’s Introduction to being exponential program with a stimulated imagination, a basic understanding of exponential technologies, a new network of like-minded individuals from others schools and regions, and a very dense learning and growth experience.
