Innovation Challenge

The Innovation Challenge is the main highlight of the event. It is a call to action for groundbreaking ideas and solutions to solve global issues.  A great opportunity for students to demonstrate their creativity and technical skills. Join us on the last day and enjoy the final student showcase.

Time: 2:30 pm
Venue: Level 1, Block A


Workshops

We will immerse you into the GEMS innovative and creative spirit, by connecting you with the most experienced industry professionals, teachers and students. A myriad of workshops covering anything from learning how to navigate Google Sheets to experiencing what it's like to command a jet airliner, and learning a powerful programming language - Python.


I Love Free Software Day

Free Software drives a huge number of devices in our everyday lives. It ensures our freedom, security, civil rights and privacy. It enables everyone to participate in a fair society. I Love Free Software Day, organised by Free Software Foundation, spreads awareness and appreciation for Free Software.

On the final day of Innovation Week, we will celebrate all the free software in the world in collaboration with the Free Software Foundation. It is the perfect day to say thank you to the contributors of the various Free Software we love: developers, translators, designers, testers, documentation writers of huge software and smaller projects. All of them work to keep the Free Software ecosystem which we enjoy every day healthy, vibrant and growing.


Debate

A rapidly developing world of technology has an important but very controversial role. The GEMS Debate Team and GEMS teachers will go head to head to formally argue and debate an interesting topic about technology.

When: 14th February 2020
Time: 1:00 - 1:45 pm
Venue: Innovation Suite (Block A, Level 3)
