What does the smart and connected city of 2050 look like?

Are you a student in Years 5 to 8 at a school in the Bendigo region? Do you have an idea about the smart and connected city of 2050?

Share it with us and you’ll have the chance to win great prizes for you and your school, and learn about careers in STEAM and design.

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 Online Info Session is for teachers considering entering teams from their school in the Regional Rail Revival Design Challenge 2050.

We’ll provide an overview of the challenge along with details of what to expect, support activities for your students, how to participate and, of course, an opportunity for you to ask any questions and make suggestions that might help us further refine this unique opportunity for students in the Bendigo region.
