The Young Innovators Challenge: Can your students change the world this summer?

“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination” (Albert Einstein) 

Do your students have innovative minds? InvestIN is calling upon all students aged 12-18 to enter The Young Innovators Challenge. For each entry, we’ll make a donation to The Childhood Trust’s ‘Champions for Children’ charity, which supports vulnerable children affected by the Covid-19 outbreak. The winner will be awarded £50 of Amazon vouchers and a complimentary place on any of our 20 Autumn Term career experience programmes.

Enter now by clicking here. The deadline for entries is 31st July.

Creativity vs Covid

Innovation has been at the heart of the human response to Covid-19. Software engineers have developed cutting-edge track and trace systems; Scientists are researching vaccines at lightning speed; volunteers have been mobilised by smartphones. People’s innate thirst to innovate has punctuated the battle to save lives.

Innovation has also been crucial to delivering education. Inspirational teachers from across the world have adapted quickly in order to keep their students learning; creating virtual classrooms and student communities. 

The Young Innovators Challenge

Now it’s your turn. InvestIN want you to propose one big idea to transform virtual learning in any school activity.
 
Submit your boldest innovation, whatever form it takes. Do you have a creative product design that allows students to carry out practical lab work at home? Can you virtually deliver the crucial life skills students get from extra-curricular activities like sport and drama? Can you match the fun of face-to-face contact with friends? 

Your innovation must:

  • Have a name
  • Be in the form of a short video or piece of text
  • Explain the following: i) what the innovation is; ii) what problem it has solved; iii) how it works; iv) why solving this problem is important to you. 
Enter now by clicking here. The deadline for entries is 31st July.
