The Australian Museum is delighted to be partnering with IBM and Macquarie University to launch the IBM EdTech Youth Challenge.
This challenge is an applied learning experience for students to understand and identify issues around environmental sustainability, health concerns and disaster resilience and how artificial intelligence (AI) technology and design thinking methods can be used to tackle these problems.
The competition is open to high schools nationwide. Teachers with teams of students in Years 7 to 10 are invited to enter compelling projects where technology, with a focus on AI and machine learning, is applied to help solve existing or imminent problems facing society. A panel of judges will review submitted Project Logbooks and the team’s video pitch identifying their project issue and proposed AI solution, with prizes awarded to the most compelling entries from teams in Stages 4 and 5.
Teachers can register now their interest in participating in the challenge. Submission deadline is 21 June.
