Tender Details

One of the biggest drivers of the Game Changer Challenge is to encourage the interdisciplinary application of subject content to real-world problems and the development of general capabilities in students. As leaders of innovation and design thinking, our partnerships provide an instrumental role in delivering valuable learning outcomes and experiences for our students and teachers.

We live in an era of accelerated innovation and increasing uncertainty where the limits of technology lie in the imagination. The great challenges of the future will be solved by today’s students. To flourish in this world, they will need to be deep thinkers, critical and reflective, empathetic and creative.  

The Game Changer Challenge is an initiative of the department to develop and promote these future-focused skills among students and teachers, in the form of a design thinking challenge.
