We Want More Open Challenge submissions!
We’re just beginning week 2 of our open-to-all-.edus challenges and are really happy with the results so far. We’ve seen innovative ideas on how to sustainably colonize Mars, how to use statistical analysis to prevent the spread of disease, and how to effectively utilize modern technology to educate those living in third world countries. While the solutions we’ve received so far are great, we want more! So submit yours today for your chance to win one of the coveted prizes.
These four are the first of many open challenges we will be hosting over the next few weeks. All of the challenges come from the winners of the American Ingenuity Awards given out by the Smithsonian institute earlier this month. The awards are given out for outstanding achievement in education, visual arts, technology and other categories. This years winners range from Jack Andraka who, at 15, created a revolutionary new method of detecting pancreatic cancer to Esperanza Spalding who won the performing arts award for her innovative work with the stand-up bass.
