Computer studies and technology students demonstrated some of their most intriguing ideas focusing on technology, innovation and entrepreneurship before a panel of judges.

The showcase, which is open to the public, is a great venue for students to connect with local business owners and entrepreneurs.

“There are a lot of opportunities for both co-op employment as well at joint business collaboration through these events,” says Ross Bigelow, Computer Studies Co-ordinator.

The next Innovation Showcase will take place in May.
