Competition & Prizes

All participating schools can enter an exciting competition with some incredible prizes up for grabs! We want students to apply the main skills they've learnt on the day, to tell us how they would use AI to solve a real-world problem they've identified. Combining creativity and critical thinking, the winning ideas will go in the draw for some of the prizes listed below!

ABOUT THE COMPETITION

The competition is open to students in years 7 to 10 and tasks them with how they could improve their school or community through the use of Artificial Intelligence. 

Students will brainstorm and then vote for what they think is the best idea. 

Once the best solution has been decided it will be fleshed out by all the students and a short video will be recorded outlining their thinking as guided by the Educator pack provided for the day.

Please refer to the terms & conditions page for full details about the competition and how to enter.
