Khan Academy launches ambitious math ‘challenge’

Over the past decade, the free instructional website Khan Academy has transformed how tens of millions of students across the globe perceive and approach math. Now, it’s pursuing a bigger aim: transforming how students perceive themselves.

Future City Competition

Future City asks middle-school students to imagine, design, and build cities of the future. After four months of designing a virtual city (using SimCity), researching, designing, and writing up their solution to a city-wide issue and building a scale model of their city, teams will present their vision to a panel of judges. After the competition is over, student participants are not only prepared to be citizens of today’s complex and technical world, they are poised to become the drivers of tomorrow.

ProjectCSGirls Competition for Middle School Girls

The challenge is simple. Build something using computer science and technology that can help solve an imminent social problem under one of three themes - global health, a safer world, and intelligent technology. You can think of it as a virtual hackathon for middle school girls. We're looking for projects that are powerful in their ability to change and disrupt the present in a positive way. You must register before you begin working on your project. After you register, you will receive an email from us within a few weeks asking if you would like to request a mentor.

SMART Competition

The Competition promotes sustainable design, renewable technology, energy efficiency and the smart grid.
