Please note that the Open Challenge descriptions on the following page describe bespoke events which we have designed in collaboration with the local business community and schools.

If you would like a Challenge tailored to your specific needs supporting any curriculum area or targeting any particular group e.g. Gifted and Talented, Environmental Issues, new Diploma areas etc. we would be happy to develop this with you.

Open Challenges are suitable for whole year cohorts or alternatively, teams from a number of schools working together on one event.
