Botho University Linkz ICT Challenge 2015
Aspiring innovators went head to head in battles of skill at the 2015 Botho University Linkz ICT Challenge on Friday the 18th of September. Tertiary and secondary students from schools across the country descended upon the Gaborone Botho University Campus to prove their mettle in all things technological. Limkokwing University of Creative Technology emerged as the overall best tertiary institution while Legae Academy was crowned the top secondary school.
As the only competition of its kind in Botswana, it tested the participating teams in a variety of games that included AdMAD, Paper Presentation, Debugging, Database Design, Web Design, IT Innovation, Animation, Info Security, Network Design, Photo Editing and Public Speaking. Initially focusing only on tertiary education institutions, the Botho University Linkz ICT Challenge eventually opened its doors to secondary schools in a bid to develop ICT skills at high school level and help students choose their career path within the ICT industry.
