FearLess, Tech More Innovation Challenge
Are equity and social justice important to you? Do you love data? Designing solutions? Working with your peers? Helping your community?
FearLess, Tech More is a virtual innovation challenge hosted by University of Washington Informatics students for middle and high school students across Washington state. Students will work in groups over the course of a week to provide a solution to a real-world problem. We are focusing on issues related to equity, social justice and/or community/culture.
Teams are made up of roughly four middle and high school students. Don't have a team? No problem! We will pair you with other students. :) Each team will be paired with a mentor to guide them through the challenge and provide feedback along the way. No technology experience is required! The process is completely virtual, and at the end participants get to show off their projects to each other and judges from the UW iSchool. (Did we mention there are prizes, too?)
“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”
