TECx 2021 TECHNOLOGIES EDUCATION CHALLENGE - 

A GREAT WEEK-LONG VIRTUAL D&T PROGRAM FOR ONLINE LEARNING FROM DATTA AUSTRALIA

The world is in crisis beyond Covid-19 and we need young people to help us solve many complex and critical problems that are highlighted by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

In TECx 2021, your students have the opportunity to use the Design Process to tackle one of the SDGs. Once they have designed a product, service or environment, they can make a short video and upload it to YouTube. Students all over Australia will vote for their favourite, and the winner will receive a 3D printer.

Click HERE for more details, including editable design templates, information on the SDGs and entry guidelines.

*Note due YouTube restrictions, this challenge is only open to students age 13+. However, anyone can watch the TECx 2020 submissions and vote on them, so it’s a great STEM learning opportunity for all students.
