The #DigiInventors Challenge has come to a close for 2019.
Our winners for this year were Marr College and their idea “Shake It Up”. They are currently working with our partners at Swarm Online to develop a prototype of their idea and will be presenting it in more detail later in 2019.
We’re working hard in the background to make our #DigiInventors Challenge 2020 even bigger and better.
Keep checking back for updates and make sure you follow us on social media.
What is it?
The #DigiInventors Challenge, in association with Andy Murray and the DHI, is on a mission to find smart new ways to help Scotland’s young people keep active, stay healthy and happy, now and in years to come.
This is where you come in!
Scotlands youth live in one of the most overweight countries on record and are ranked as having one of the lowest activity levels in the world. We want your help to change this! By creating a new digital idea you can help change the behaviours of young Scots everywhere and help them live happy, healthier lives.
In teams of four to six, supported by at least one adult mentor (over the age of 21), we want you to develop an idea that will help young people actively take part in looking after their health, fitness and wellbeing, using digital technology. We’ve all heard of apps that analyse diets and moods, watches that monitor heart rates and games that promote exercise. What new idea can you come up with?
Mentors should submit their teams application to the challenge here. Applicants should make sure they follow the challenge rules. To make sure that applications contain the right information for our judges applicants should use the challenges application guide to help debvelop their idea. The challenge Privacy Notice details how we will protect and use any information we receive.
