The Real World Design Challenge (RWDC) is an annual competition that provides high school students, grades 9-12, the opportunity to work on real world engineering challenges in a team environment.
*** This is the first year for Arizona to join in with 28 states.***
• Students will gain Real World experience by solving an engineering design problem for the transportation industry.
• Teachers and students will work with state of the art industry engineering design software worth $1 million dollars at NO COST to schools.
• The annual software licenses will be updated FREE OF CHARGE as long as your school participates in the competition.
• Teachers will receive software training FREE OF CHARGE.
• Industry mentors will work with your students FREE OF CHARGE.
• The winning student team from each state will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Washington DC to compete in the National Competition. Last year’s National Champions presented their design solution to President Obama at the White House.
Details on the challenge is on the Real World Design Website.
