Transforming Education Through Technology: Elevating Student Voice
Every year, hundreds of students participate in the Conrad Challenge, developing innovative ideas to solve some of the world's most challenging problems in categories such as Energy & Environment, Aerospace & Engineering, and starting in 2018/19, Education.
As part of our commitment to help students and teachers achieve better outcomes and elevating student voice, SMART partners with the Conrad Foundation Challenge to encourage students to develop new educational innovations that will improve outcomes in the classroom. The Transforming Education Through Technology category inspired almost 70 teams from around the world to develop innovations to shape the future of education in 2018/19.
2018 - 2019 Conrad Innovation Summit
66 teams from 14 countries around the world have been hard at work in the Transforming Education Through Technology category since October 2018. 5 teams moved to the final round and competed for top honors during the 2019 Conrad Innovation Summit at the Kennedy Space Center
in Florida from April 23 - 26, 2019. The winning team, Team SpeakEasy, also took home the Navy's Gemini Award, showing outstanding teamwork and collaboration.
