What is the challenge?

Regional Rail Revival has partnered with Bendigo Tech School, the Bendigo Discovery Science & Technology Centre and the Goldfields Local Learning and Employment Network to develop Design Challenge 2050; a team-based competition for school students in the Bendigo region.

You’ll meet students from other schools and get inspired at our Immersion Day at the Bendigo Discovery Centre, before heading back to school to start work on your team’s design.

A series of guided learning hours and mentoring workshops will help your team to develop and perfect its idea before sending it to the judges. If your idea is shortlisted, you’ll get to present it to our panel of engineers and other experts from Rail Projects Victoria at our Gala Pitch Final hosted by Bendigo Tech School.

There are great prizes up for grabs for the winning teams and schools!

This Immersion Day launches the Regional Rail Revival Challenge. Students will learn how the challenge works and participate in workshops that will help them consider the the possibilities for rail in the future, identify a project and understand how “design thinking” underpins the innovation process from idea to prototype, testing and beyond.
