During Term 2 students who decide to participate will be placed into teams of seven and then provided with a challenge that is provided by the organisers. Students then have ten weeks to complete the challenge, without the assistance of teachers, family or friends not in the team.
At the end of the challenge teams participate in a regional day where they present their solution to a team of judges. On the day, they are also expected to solve a given problem in a time period of ten minutes.

The challenges could come from a choice of disciplines:
  • Applied Technology
  • Language Literature
  • Maths Engineering
  • Social Sciences

It aims to enhance the potential of our youth by developing diverse skills, enterprise, time management, and the discipline to work collaboratively within a competitive environment.

This is the first year that the College has offered this program and it will be an exciting, and rewarding, time for those students who wish to meet the challenge.
