Tech Challenge for 11-16-Year Olds
Nesta Challenges’ £1m Longitude Explorer Prize is calling on young people across the UK to develop innovative AI solutions to society’s biggest issues, including living longer, living healthier and living greener.
- The Prize aims to inspire entrepreneurship among a diverse range of young people and engage them with innovation by encouraging them to develop tech solutions to issues they care about
- The competition is open to any school or youth group in the UK, who can enter teams of young people aged 11-16
- Participants are encouraged to submit ideas that use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help people live longer (helping the older generation to stay independent and active), live better (helping people live healthier), live together (through better transportation and tech) and live greener (helping tackle pollution and energy saving)
- The aim is to stimulate young people’s entrepreneurial skills and show how they have the power to create impactful solutions by applying STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) knowledge to address some of the world’s biggest issues
- The prize runs across the academic year, with submissions open from 23rd September until 29th November 2019.
