Communitech in partnership with Future Design School presents "True North on Campus: Designing the Future".

This hands-on action-packed experience is an opportunity for high school students to design solutions to real challenges within the Kitchener-Waterloo region and pitch those solutions to a panel of expert technology judges.

In our rapidly-changing world creativity, curiosity, empathy, and resilience are skills that everyone will need to possess. The Smart Cities Student Challenge will introduce you to design thinking and innovative problem-solving methods that foster these skills while promoting critical thinking and compassion.

This event includes a design thinking workshop to help you design innovative solutions that leverage technology to solve real-world problems. Finally, you will also have the chance to pitch your solution to a panel of expert judges.

Learn to use the same methods leveraged by the world's most innovative organizations.

Join an amazing group of students and facilitators for a 2-hour session at Google's Super Collider Space (51 Breithaupt St, Kitchener, ON N2H 5G5) from 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM on June 19, 2019.

Spaces are limited, and first come, first serve***
