GrowingNZ Innovation Challenge Days 2019

This fast-paced, one-day competition is for teams of year 10 students with an interest in technology, science or business.

The challenge requires students to apply their subject knowledge and build a prototype solution to a real-life situation being faced by one of New Zealand's largest export industries. 

The day presents teams with an industry challenge that requires students to use investigative research and practical knowledge of science, technology, and business to design and prototype a solution to the challenge. Students will interview and collect feedback from industry representatives. Each day has $250 worth of prizes up for grabs!
