Future Prize Challenge for Middle School 2020
Grades 6-8

Future Design School

Future Prize is an opportunity for Middle School students in Grades 6-8 to design solutions to a real-world challenge and pitch their solutions in a competition with other CIS Ontario Schools.

The event includes a design thinking workshop for teams of students and teachers, an action-packed day of designing solutions, and an exciting final 'pitch' of solutions to a panel of expert judges.

An exciting opportunity for participating teachers is a full day of Professional Learning, scheduled for January 11th, 2019. This day is for all teachers who will be joining students for the Future Prize Day.
