CHILDREN ICT SUMMIT

Children ICT Summit (CITS: e-Innovate Nigeria)

CITS a.k.a. E-Innovate Nigeria is a yearly seminar and capacity building for students and teachers from primary and secondary schools in Nigeria.

Children Seminars had since started since the inception of the High Tech Centre at Ile-ife, Osun State Nigeria as a motivation for schools to start ICT Clubs for pupils and students in order to encourage career development in Science & Technology courses especially computer Science.

The Seminar metamorphosed into a newer level with the need to encourage innovation and creativities among students for national development. E-Innovate was born and it has become the nomenclature for the Children’s ICT Summit for the past two years.
