Global Innovation Race 2024

Global Innovation Race 2024 takes place in the vibrant city of Kigali, Rwanda, a leading tech hub nestled just south of the Equator, within Africa’s beating heart.

Led by leading educators and industry experts, Digital Media Academy has been preparing the next generation of global leaders with world-class STEAM programs since 1999.

Join the global youth innovator community for a summer experience that will shape your future.
Immerse yourself in the world of AI and emerging tech, exploring their role in driving innovation. Engage in solving global challenges while honing your design, social, and entrepreneurial skills. Draw inspiration from local tech scenes and diverse cultures. Build a global network, forge lifelong friendships, and create indelible memories—all within an experience tailored for 13-17-year-olds.

GIR participants will dive into Rwanda’s culture, including traditional Intore dancing, basketry, and Umuganda.
In addition to receiving a Global Innovator micro-credential from Digital Media Academy, Global Innovation Race participants will receive a one-year membership to the Global Youth Innovator Forum, an online membership community that provides students with opportunities to continue learning, collaborating, and innovating.
