The world is in need of creative thinkers ready to engineer solutions for humanity. The Conrad Foundation believes teens have the potential to create the next world-changing, commercially-viable product or service to address global sustainability for the benefit of humanity.
This year, the Spirit of Innovation Challenge, an annual business and technical plan competition, is inviting students from around the world to design something that matters using science, technology, engineering and math in the areas of: Aerospace and Aviation, Cybersecurity and Technology, Energy and Environment, and Health and Nutrition.
Participation is free and begins by creating a profile at www.conradawards.org. Teams of 2-5 students from public and private schools, afterschool programs, science clubs, homeschool organizations, charter schools, summer camps and more are also encouraged to participate. Each team must have a teacher, parent/guardian, program coordinator or adult serve as their coach.
Registration is now open and one-page abstracts will be accepted starting August 22 with a final deadline of Oct. 24. Teams selected as semi-finalists will be asked to complete a full proposal and finalist teams will travel to NASA Johnson Space Center and vie for $50K in prizes.
