Shark Tank eSchool

The University of Adelaide has joined forces with Sony Shark Tank and MIE Lab to deliver the eChallenge in local, regional, public and private schools across the State.

The Australian eChallenge program has had a long and successful presence in South Australian high schools. In 2019, the program has gone up another level.

What will you learn?

The program teaches students to think creatively and develop solutions to real world problems, while prototyping their ideas and pitching and presenting these to a panel of experts. By equipping students with the skills, knowledge, understanding and personal capabilities to participate and successfully compete in a fast-paced global society, the students of today can build their own futures for tomorrow.

Who can register?

The program is open to Year 10 and 11 students, delivered in school, but with opportunities to interact with the University, the wider public, and Shark Tank personnel. Each module in the program is designed as an engaging step-by-step innovation process which ensures that students are actively engaged in their own learning.
