About Mthatha 4IR EXPO

Our mission is to make your life easier.

The 4th Industrial Revolution is well echoed within the South African policy directions, innovation ecosystems and indeed, the education sector. Against this backdrop, the St. John’s College and Umtata High School had sought to invite the Centre for Public Service Innovation (CPSI) and Geekulcha to host a 4IR Youth EXPO with aim to help the youth better understand and set course towards actuation of the 4IR, contextual to their livelihoods.

A different kind of a revolution for the youth of 2022 against those of 1976 - the youth in Mthatha will be exposed to different technological artifacts and tools to help define and live up to a digital narrative that resonates impact.
