About the challenge

In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, access to technology is becoming increasingly prevalent among young people. It is not uncommon to see children as young as five years old having their own smartphones. Furthermore, the government's emphasis on self-directed learning, facilitated by personal learning devices, should ideally foster a greater interest in technology among youths. However, despite these advancements, there remains a concerning gap in the availability of resources within schools to support students' learning journeys. Consequently, this lack of access to adequate resources creates barriers for young minds to fully explore and develop their creative potential in the realm of technology and innovation.
