How does it work?

Registered teachers will be invited to attend two online sessions to better understand the challenge, ask questions, and get the right training on how to use a Google platform, which their students can use for the challenge. Here are the next steps:  

  • Before Wednesday 10 July 2023: Register here and create your teams. We recommend 3-5 students per team, but you can have multiple teams in your class.

  • Wednesday 12 July 2023 (10:00 - 11:00am BST / 16:00 - 17:00 ICT):  Registered teachers will attend a one-hour online information session that will provide an overview of the challenge, the platform, and its features.

  • Tuesday 18 July 2023 (03:00 - 11:00am BST / 09:00 - 17:00 ICT): An online training session with challenge partner iTrain Asia on how to use Google tools to complete the challenge. It is compulsory to attend this session to submit the project and join the challenge. If you want to submit a project but do not have access to the teacher resource page, please contact us here.
