Apply your edtech innovation skills to solve some of the most pressing problems in learning engineering.

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

Aimed at venture scientists involved in education who wish to apply their research and/or startup to solve education challenges, the Challenge provides a unique opportunity to engage with one of the most prominent edtech organisations worldwide.

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.

Agenda:

14:00 – 14:05 Welcome & CX Overview

14.15 – 14.35 Challenge Statements

14.35 – 14.40 Challenge Submission

14:40 – 15.00 Questions & Closing Remarks

Challenge Statements:

1. How might we make tools to enable researchers to experiment with different learning approaches easily and at scale?

2. How might we reduce the cost of large-scale assessment by half while increasing its quality?

3. How can we help students to become proficient writers by using NLP?

4. How might we help students with accelerated recovery in maths?

If you are involved in an edtech startup, or are researching or developing a technology that could be applied to learning engineering, please join us to learn how you could win a cash prize and for the chance to develop a proof of concept through a three-month project.
