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, develop and pitch their own solutions in a professional entrepreneurial way to their peers and STEM experts for a chance to win cash prizes.
The Grand Challenge is aligned to the Australian Curriculum, including the General Capabilities and Cross-Curricular Priorities. Student classes will need to be supervised online by a teacher.
This is a collaboration with Future Anything.
The Grand Challenge will focus on renewable energy featuring STEM specialist Professor Kondo-Francois Aguey-Zinsou, one of the world's leading hydrogen fuel researchers.
