About this event
NRMA Future of Transport Challenge PL will be held over 2 x 60 minute sessions
The first session was held on Tuesday 11 May.
The second session is on Tuesday 18 May from 4-5pm
This PL will prepare you to give your students the best learning experience from the Challenge.
We will use Microsoft Teams to host the PL. A URL will be sent to you the day prior to 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).
In Session 1, we go through key dates and the requirements of the Challenge, explore some of the Challenge resources, and introduce you to design thinking concepts. An industry expert from our EV (Electric Vehicle) Division will join us to talk about EV innovation in Australia and the future of mobility.
In Session 2, you get hands-on experience with some of the design thinking concepts and activities that are explored throughout the Challenge, in the design thinking playbook, and discuss your students' final project (executive summary and pitch deck) and the mentoring support we provide.
You can register for Session 2 here.
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 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 November.
The NRMA future of transport challenge is offered to schools free of charge.
Free of charge
The session will be facilitated by the NRMA Education team 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.
