Organized by the College of the North Atlantic and NATI, this annual, day long conference brings together almost 400 Grade 9 students and exposes them to a wide range of technology careers in the hopes of providing inspiration for their academic plans. Students are also given a chance to meet leaders and mentors working within the provincial technology sector.
Chosen for their charisma and engaging personalities, YIT speakers aim to engage with young people on their own level. They embody the excitement a career in technology can bring. As well, by bringing together participants from different schools and gathering them at a college campus, YIT offers students the opportunity to view themselves in a new context. http://www.innovationweek.ca/schedule/
