The Bright Ideas Challenge is now open! 

The Bright Ideas Challenge asks students to imagine creative ideas for how cities of the future might be powered. It’s designed to spark young people’s curiosity in science and engineering and to help you deliver the curriculum in a fun and engaging way. And with up to S$5,000 prize packages of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) prizes available, we hope as many schools as possible get involved.

Ready to rise to the challenge? We’ve created resources to guide you and your students towards submitting a fantastic entry. Use the interactive navigation box above or scroll down and explore everything you need to run The Bright Ideas Challenge in your classroom, step-by-step. Get your students’ entries in by Monday 6 February, 2017.

Step 1: Watch the videos

Each of the four key activities that make up The Bright Ideas Challenge is introduced by a mini video. They will introduce your students to the competition and help guide them towards completing their entry. Watch them now to get an overview of the competition and see what’s involved – it takes about 15 minutes.

Step 2: Download the resources

Download the key resources you need to deliver The Bright Ideas Challenge in your classroom. We recommend you start by reading the Teacher Toolkit, which explains how the competition works and the different resources we’ve developed for you. As an optional activity, you can also get your students fired-up and working as a team with our engineering ice-breakers.
