Grand Challenges program

For students in Year 9 and 10

Giving your students around Australia the opportunity to collaborate with leading researchers and award- winning entrepreneurs to design their very own innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems.

Year 9-10 students will spend a day learning about a real-life global problem i.e. the Grand Challenge, and brainstorm, create a prototype and pitch their own solutions in a professional entrepreneurial way to their peers and STEM experts for a chance to win cash prizes.  

Each participating school or individually participating student will be provided with a Grand Challenge Kit containing all relevant support materials and curriculum links and rubrics prior to the Challenge commencing.

The Grand Challenge is aligned to the Australian Curriculum, including the General Capabilities and Cross-Curricular Priorities. Students will need to be supervised online by a teacher or guardian.

This is a collaboration between Future Anything, the University of Sydney and Breaking Good.   

Want to run Grand Challenges for a large cohort on a day of your choice?

We can organise a Grand Challenges day especially for your school by request. This option is recommended only for groups of students 100+. Contact us directly for more details.
