Description

INNOVATE AND IMPROVE LEARNING AT NUS

NUS is ranked among the best universities for providing world class education to our students. We have been doing so for years by utilizing cutting edge technology to make education enjoyable for all.

The dawn of the technological era has brought about exciting new technologies such as:

- Artificial Intelligence

- Cloud and Mobile Computing

- Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality

- and more

How can we better harness the power of technology to enrich the learning experience for students?

Join us in the NUS Edtech Challenge for two days of intense brainstorming to push education and learning in NUS to greater heights!


NOT A HACKATHON

We believe that products of pristine quality should not be created overnight. Teams are required to present a working prototype by the end of the weekend, but it doesn't have to be coded out. Winning ideas are expected to be well thought out and designed to match the needs of education.


PRIZES & PERKS

- Up to 10,000 SGD cash prize to implement the idea

- Internship over the summer to implement your project

- Working space

- Learn about learning sciences through workshops and experiences of your teammates. Researchers will be conducting workshops on how people learn so that you can use those principles in the technologies you decide to design or create

- Get your ideas heard by the NUS community. Judges and mentors will include influential professors and administrators who will implement your technologies if they find them matching their needs

- Letter of reference from Associate Provost

- Students from all faculties
