Business, Innovation and Technology

Business, Innovation and Technology (BIT) is offered to Year 10 students as an elective providing industry experience in how technology is used and created in a business context. Working in specific roles in project teams, students focus on four topics that have been selected based on industry relevance: Artificial Intelligence (AI), Food Trucks, Business Intelligence and Design.

The students also work in partnership with award-winning Lot 14 data analytics firm Exposé. They undertake an intensive program of real business intelligence simulations with the Exposé staff and collaborate to develop solutions.

This innovative subject caters for students with different levels of interest and confidence in the development and use of technology in entrepreneurial scenarios.

It has already resulted in much success, with a pair of Saints Girls claiming State and National titles at the Microsoft AI for Good Challenge in 2019, and another team winning the State Finals in 2020.
