The SUTD and IDC are very honoured to collaborate with J.P. Morgan (JPM) and The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) on the 2021 The Schools Challenge to be held virtually this year from the 26th Feb 2021 to 23rd April 2021. 

The Schools Challenge takes aspiring lower secondary students through a 2-month, structured programme with SUTD, focusing on STEM and Design Innovation skills, and culminates with a student-driven social project aimed at building a smart and sustainable Singapore. 

Throughout this series of virtual workshops hosted by SUTD, each team will be able to work closely with JP Morgan and SUTD mentors.

There will be an extended opportunity for schools with eligible prototypes to be able to apply for the Lively Places Fund and Challenge - Housing & Development Board (HDB) where they will be able to showcase their ideas in their neighbourhood. This fund encourages residents and stakeholders to initiate community-driven place-making projects that will help develop stronger place identity in their neighbourhood. This is definitely an opportunity for all schools to be a part of and not to miss!


Attractive prizes await with up to $2000 for the winning team and up to $1000 for category winners.
