ARM has partnered with the Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose, Calif., to sponsor a video contest for the Tech Challenge 2015. The contest is open to boys and girls in grades 4-12 and is designed to provide a compelling visual record of the participants' journey as they tackle real-world problems using engineering-design thinking.
This annual two-day event is now in its 28th year. It aims to inspire future generations of Silicon Valley innovators and reinforces 21st century skills such as creativity, problem-solving and design. It also helps participants to deal with risk-taking and teaches them how to learn from failure and perseverance. This year's challenge is to build an earthquake-safe structure.
Videos may record a breakthrough moment, a cool design, brainstorming process or simply chart the project as a whole. The films will be judged on creativity, visual and audio appeal and storytelling. The top three videos will receive an award and be played during the event.
