"I now know exactly my passion and how I can contribute to society"- secondary school student

Take on a GrowingNZ Innovation Challenge.

This fast-paced, one-day competition is for teams of Year 10 (14–15-year-old) students with an interest in technology, science, or business. The challenge requires students to apply their subject knowledge and design and build a prototype solution to a real-life situation being faced by New Zealand's largest export sector.

Year 10 students studying science, technology or commerce are challenged to create solutions for real-world situations in our resilient food & fibre sectors. Working in teams of four with industry experts on hand to give advice, students plan and create a prototype which is judged by a panel of sector experts. Each challenge is authentic and designed to connect the students with the food & fibre sectors.
