Students Head to Game Changer Challenge Semi-Finals
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—Speaker, I congratulate the students at Beauty Point Public School who are heading to the NSW 2020 Game Changer Challenge semi-finals! The Beauty Point Team, Annika, Anni, Olle, Holly, and Sam from 6R have put together a design proposal to solve the real world problem "how might we use technology to bring everyone in our community closer together?". The Year 6 team achieved the design thinking trifecta of desirability, feasibility and viability. This design thinking challenge is open to all public schools across the state and centres on exploring tangible solutions for a real-world problem. Students are encouraged to learn new skills and unlock powerful design thinking tools and processes, while having a whole lot of fun along the way. Congratulations to Annika, Anni, Olle, Holly, and Sam and the best of luck for the semi‑finals competition in October, where they will be guided by expert facilitators and thought leaders in technology and innovation.
