Real World Design Challenge
Students can make a difference!
What it is
How does it work?
Every teacher that participates in the RWDC gets $1 million in professional engineering software along with training, curriculum materials, and access to mentors. Teams of 3-7 high school students use these resources to solve an engineering challenge that is currently faced by industry.
Students first compete in a state level Governor’s Cup. The team with the best design in each state gets an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, DC to compete in the national finals. You will receive an additional Challenge that builds on the state challenge, which you will present in Washington in November
