Conception X is delighted to announce the launch of its Tech for Education Challenge.

The Challenge focus is aimed at improving educational outcomes by leveraging computing and data to dramatically increase the effectiveness of learning science as a discipline.

The Challenge is supported by Schmidt Futures, a philanthropic initiative founded by Eric and Wendy Schmidt that bets early on exceptional people making the world better.
