Setting the Stage with Challenge Champion, Kris Ludwig
Your mind is full of ideas about how to make the world a better place. This is your chance to start turning those ideas into reality.
Design & Pitch Challenges in STEM ask you to examine significant problems in real-world circumstances and consider how you can create solutions. You will meet inventors and entrepreneurs who share their insights into the process of creation, from concept to prototype, pitch, production, and distribution. You will encounter a selection of Challenges that can be approached from many angles, using different areas of knowledge, techniques, and technology.
It is your task to come up with an innovative solution to a Challenge and create a short, engaging pitch to convince a panel of investors that it’s worth funding. Be clear, be concise, and be convincing! The world needs your big ideas.
Challenge 1: Operation Lifeline
During natural disasters, delivering essential supplies like water, food, and medicine becomes a race against time. This challenge becomes even harder when the supplies have to be kept cold the whole time so that they don’t spoil. In this Design & Pitch Challenge, you will find a workable solution for this important problem.
