The challenge consists of 3 boot camps where students will develop their ideas, go through a rigorous design thinking process, research and prototype, as well as learn about the steps to becoming a technopreneur.  

Secondary 2 or 3 students who are interested can form teams of 4. You can email Mr Lam (lam_hin_chew@sst.edu.sg) the details of your team name, all the members' names, classes and mobile numbers. Participants must be able to commit to attending the 3 bootcamps by JA Singapore and the weekly TDP sessions on Monday afternoons from 3 - 5 p.m. to work on the competition. They must also have their parents'/guardians' permissions to take part.
