Here at ITEX, we are firm believers in encouraging children to be their most innovative selves. This is why the inaugural staging of the World Young Inventors Exhibition (WYIE) during ITEX 2018 was such a big success that we had to bring it back in 2019! The debut of WYIE saw participants from 68 local primary and secondary schools whereas on the international level, a total of 9 countries sent their representatives over. As we aim to leapfrog into 2018, we hope to raise the awareness of budding inventors through new innovative approaches and to complement the enhanced STEM curriculum introduced in schools. WYIE will encourage higher order thinking skills with the objective to expose young students to the innovative landscape in the real world, as well as encourage potential innovators to start young. So keep an eye out as we unveil a more inclusive and stimulating staging of WYIE.
– Maximum ages to participate in this event is 22 years old.
