High school students ‘shake hands’ with technology

High school students taking part in the workshops

The University of Nicosia offered young people the opportunity to explore career prospects in the information and communication technologies.
Students from lyceums from all over Cyprus attended a conference held at the University of Nicosia entitled ‘Handshaking with Technology 2019’. It is an annual event which is under the auspices of the head of secondary education of the education ministry Kyprianos Louis.
This year’s seminar was the sixth in a series organised by the department of management and administrative information systems of the University of Nicosia, in collaboration with the association of Cyprus computer teachers.
The students who participated took part in workshops that approached themes such as animation, game industry, web-server penetration, robotics and large data display through interactive maps. The workshops, which focused on the latest technology trends, were conducted by the departments of design and multimedia, management and information systems, information technology and the department of mechanics of the University of Nicosia. In the context of the workshops, the pupils talked to the teachers of each department in order to discover their abilities and to collect important information and make experiential experiences which will be valuable for their choice of professional orientation.
Creativity workshops were also held, and a constructive dialogue was held between student teachers and university professors on issues faced within and outside the classroom. During the dialogue, teachers and students welcomed the excellent organisation of the workshop, thanking the University of Nicosia for this initiative.
More than 150 students attended the workshop.
