Registration Not Currently Available

An annual challenge designed to provide K-12 students from around the world a place to share, compete and be celebrated for their brilliant Ideas, Apps, and Prototypes.

Students will develop an idea, app, or prototype that solves a problem. They will develop, test, and present their original project as part of the Global Innovation Challenge (G.I.C.). Three categories for the Challenge include: Idea – The innovation is a detailed design of a future App, Prototype, Program or Organization, created with words, pictures, calculations, plans on paper or electronically. There may be a physical display model, but the model has no functionality. App – The innovation consists of an application or software program strictly on a microcontroller, computer, tablet, phone, or other electronic device, that does not extend beyond the device. Prototype – The innovation is a tangible device or product that has been constructed and has some, if not all, of the functions and capabilities that it might need to be actually used in the real world. It is allowable to not be made of the correct materials; it may not be the correct size, and it may certainly not work as well as it should, but it does have the ability to perform at least some of the functions it is intended to do.
