The world is in crisis beyond Covid-19 and we need every secondary student to help us solve many complex and critical problems that are highlighted by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
TECx is your opportunity to use the Design Process to tackle one of the following SDGs:
Due to Covid-19 related disruptions DATTA Australia have had many requests to extend the TECx submission date.
New submission date for 2020 is now to Monday the 19th of October in 2020 so Design and Technologies students will now be able to complete their TECx video submissions during Design and Technologies Week (12-18th Oct unless otherwise indicated in your state, region or school).
5 finalist videos will be selected by the DATTA Australia Committee and these will be broadcast on YouTube before the end of Term 4 for national voting to select the winner of a 3D printer!
The winner will also be given the opportunity to work with a panel of experts to help take their concept to the next level.
The world needs your amazing ideas, good luck!
