FREE hands-on registered professional learning for years 5-10 teachers
About this event
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 7-10 students to create an innovative product or service which addresses a real-world need through the application of design thinking. Primary schools are also encouraged to take part with years 5-6 students engaging in a slightly more directed version of the challenge.
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.
