The Real World Design Challenge (RWDC) is an annual competition that provides high school students, grades 9-12, the opportunity to work on real world engineering challenges in a team environment. Each year, student teams will be asked to address a challenge that confronts our nation's leading industries. Students will utilize professional engineering software to develop their solutions and will also generate presentations that convincingly demonstrate the value of their solutions. The RWDC provides students with opportunities to apply the lessons of the classroom to the technical problems that are being faced in the workplace.

Students use professional design software from PTC to create engineering design solutions in response to annual challenge topics. Solutions are submitted and reviewed at the state level first, then State Champions are invited to Washington D.C. to compete in a live final event.

Designs are scored based on an evaluation rubric found on the competition website.
