Hurry! Time is running out to submit for the Disney's Create Tomorrowland – XPRIZE Challenge. All submissions are due by May 17. We want kids, 8-17, to imagine themselves in the future and report back to the present through a video, an image, or a story about one new and amazing invention or innovation they encounter, how it works, and the impact it has on the future.
Submissions will be judged on their originality and creative expression; use of S.T.E.A.M. skills; and what people can now do to make the idea a reality. A panel of expert XPRIZE judges will evaluate all the submissions and select the six winners (three winners from the 8-12 age group and three winners from 13-17 age group).
The six winners will each receive an amazing prize package that includes: a $3,000 check, a 3D printer from 3D Systems™, an IMAX theatre experience for up to 10 people, free registration for FIRST® LEGO® League, an annual subscription to Tales2Go®, a once in a lifetime mentorship experience in June 2015, and more.
What will transportation look like in the future? What will architecture look like? What will fashion and design look like? How will we solve world hunger? What does personal healthcare look like? These are the questions we should be asking our kids today.
