IT-oLogy and the South Carolina Department of Education are pleased to announce the 2nd annual Innovation Challenge is now open. The Challenge is a statewide competition for grades 3-12 students and teachers who create projects using technology to solve, or bring awareness to a problem in the community.

“Last year, the South Carolina Innovation Challenge encouraged students across South Carolina to design, create, and take their use of technology to a whole new level. We are excited to open this year’s Challenge to both students and teachers so they can be innovative in solving real world problems in their local communities,” said South Carolina Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman.

The 2018 Challenge is for students in grades 3 – 12! Create a project that uses technology to solve a problem facing the environment in your school, community, or South Carolina.

Examples could include:

- Robotics

- Web Design

NEW for 2018! The Innovation Teacher Challenge! K-12 teachers will demonstrate how they effectively integrate technology into their classroom and demonstrate lessons to solve a problem facing the environment.

The top innovators will be awarded scholarships, cool technology prizes, discounts on IT-oLogy programs and more!

The deadline for entry is September 7, 2018. For more information, https://www.it-ology.org/getconnected/programs/innovation-challenge/.
