Forge Academy students participate in successful tri-continental hackathon

Students from Forge Academy, South Africa's first fully inclusive Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) laboratory, recently took part in a tri-continental hackathon between students from South Africa, Finland and the USA.

"The hackathon was a great opportunity for South African ICT students to represent their country and continent among leading tech nations and to grow their ICT skills. Our students gained practical experience on how to solve consumer and business problems using digital solutions, specifically how to build customer-driven chatbots. We look forward to hosting future continental hackathons because it gives students a chance to develop their ICT skills in a fun and exciting environment,"
