Conrad Challenge 2019
The Conrad Challenge brings science and technology studies to life through a student-driven, project-based approach. There are no theoretical tasks here! Students identify relevant real-world challenges that don’t necessarily have a clear answer and learn how to innovate by creating solutions.
It gives students between the ages of 13-18 the chance to become entrepreneurs and apply innovation, science and technology to solve problems with global impact.
A competition that is creating the next generation of entrepreneurs who are going to change the world
Guided by teachers and industry experts, the competition becomes a master class in collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and communication.
The result: students develop skills needed to thrive in the 21st century workforce and bring to life commercially-viable innovations that have the potential to change life for the better on the individual, national and global levels.
Students, teachers, experts and sponsors all agree… the Conrad Challenge is unlike any STEM competition out there. This isn’t a science fair. It’s an innovation competition that is creating the next generation of entrepreneurs who are going to change the world!
