Scaling the search engine's Summit
26 June 2012
Emissaries: Having a blast at the Google Summit in Nairobi were UCT's Timothy Taylor, Lorna Okeng and Atang Motloli.
If you'd searched for three technically savvy UCT students anytime between 10 and 14 June, the internet's most popular search engine would have vouched for their presence at the Google Student Ambassador Summit: Sub-Saharan Africa in Nairobi, Kenya.
Atang Motloli, Lorna Okeng and Timothy Taylor represent UCT among the newest group of Google student ambassadors selected from across the continent. In Nairobi, they were to be found developing their "technical and leadership skills" along with 167 counterparts.
These 170 students selected as ambassadors for the next academic year will liaise between their universities and Google, promoting the company's products and ideals.
"We are here to serve you as the UCT community and we are hoping to use technology and Google products to enhance the overall learning experience for all UCT students," explains Taylor.
The trio make up the second group of Google ambassadors from UCT since the programme was launched in Sub-Saharan Africa in 2011.
