The next generation of tech gurus is growing up in our backyards, skinning it's knees in local playgrounds and attending Halton high schools. They interact with the globe over parent-financed broadband as they dream up ways to solve the world's problems, compete in mind-stretching, world-class technology competitions and learn more in an hour online that we were able to extract during years of searching through dusty library catacombs.

Halton teens are learning fast, stretching boundaries, and developing ideas into fledgling new businesses that will help create new opportunities in the region ... and keep more of our budding geniuses close to home.

On June 10th, at Milton Education Village, Silicon Halton held it's first ever Tech Under 20 meetup with five high school Tech Stars - speaking about their vision, their ideas, their thinking processes, and their innovations!
