These young people are going to live in the world that is transformed by technology and are going to deal with a world dominated by AI.

Student

I'm excited to meet all the experts and I want some more information on how we can humanise technology.

Woman

We just had a panel discussion and I think I got asked some of the most intelligent questions I've ever been asked in my life so I should be handing out my business card to some of the kids now because it's very very impressive. Best of all we've got like eighteen incredible teams of students and teachers that are here to solve some really big chunky problems.

Sarah Mitchell

Really innovative and insightful questions that they asked, I think they've all got a really bright future and that's exciting.

Student

We have to make 100 ideas in 15 minutes.

Student

I didn't come up with that many, but as a group we came up with quite a few.

They are absolute naturals with this kind of stuff in terms of how they use colour. They're much more willing to just jump in and pick up a marker.

Man

You sit them down on a computer, show them one tutorial, and the ideas they come up with is absolutely amazing.

Student

Our design's called the 'Embot' the empathy bot you deserve.

Student

If you put your rubbish in the bin you get currency.

Student

I'm making a moisture sensor because we're doing a design for the farmers.

Man

Students are so much quicker at picking up this sort of technology. In fact right now I've almost run out of things to do with them and we've still got 30 minutes to go.

Student

We were pitching an idea, an app which rewards people for putting their recycling in the correct bin.

Student

Well we made an education system on virtual reality goggles.

Student

We designed an app called 'Power to People' and it's giving people their political voices back.

Student

I think it went well.

Student

It was really terrifying.

I learnt how to like fit in somebody else's shoes and feel empathy.

Student

It's just been so fun, it's been the greatest opportunity.
