Innovation Challenge: Green Planet

September 29, 2018, 09:00

Crofton House School


Do you have an idea to improve our planet? ProtoHack’s Innovation Challenge: Green Planet is the first step in making it a reality!

This event is a one-day innovation challenge built on a curriculum of design thinking, critical problem solving, and applied creativity for the Students at Crofton House School. There is no coding or programming required. This is open to all Senior School students (Grade 8 -12). You will be using a prototyping tool called, a drag and drop editor, that lets you create mockups, wireframes and anything else you think of to visually demo your idea. Competitors will work in teams (up to 5) and present their ideas live on stage at the end of the day. You will have access to industry mentors and workshops. Prizes include dinner with the keynote speaker and an invitation to pitch your idea at an official industry pitch night.

ProtoHack exists to show entrepreneurs that they can create something amazing from nothing without having to write a single line of code. We empower and enable the non-technical community with the tools, knowledge, and know-how that will help bring their idea to life and visually communicate it through prototyping.
