About this event

NRMA Future of Transport Challenge PD on Thursday 26 March from 4pm will now be online

Thank you for registering for this PD which we have now moved online to allow us to respond to the social distancing requirements arising from COVID-19.

You can register online here.

As we move online we have had to make a few changes:

  1. The PD will be held over 2 x 60 minute sessions. The first on Thursday 26 March from 4-5pm with the second date and time to be determined following session 1.
  2. We will use Google Meet. A URL will be sent to you 30 minutes before the session to allow you to log in. It is best to use Chrome and Microsoft Edge in preference to Internet Explorer (though this will also work)

Transport is the next major disruptor and Australia is looking for new technologies to keep people moving while delivering social, environmental and financial benefits.

As a trusted industry leader, NRMA is challenging year students to create an innovative product or service which addresses a real-world need through the application of design thinking.

The Challenge is all about collaboration and entrepreneurship with four finalist teams pitching their ideas live in front of a panel of transport industry experts at a youth event in September.

The NRMA future of transport challenge is offered to schools free of charge.

This event will prepare you to give your students the best learning experience from the Challenge. Spend two hours with the program designers going through the challenge resources, the design thinking playbook and your students' final project which is an executive summary and pitch deck. You'll get hands-on experience with some of the design thinking concepts and activities that are explored through the challenge.


Free of charge


The session will be led by Venera Owens from NRMA who created the Challenge and Rob McTaggart from SLAM Education who has worked as the learning designer since the launch in 2017 bringing his extensive STEM, curriculum and design thinking expertise.
