Real World Design Challenge

The Center for Mathematics and Science Education is excited to invite you to participate in the 2014 Real World Design Challenge

RWDC

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. Each year, student teams will be asked to address a challenge that confronts our nation’s leading industries. Students will utilize professional engineering software to develop their solutions and will also generate presentations that convincingly demonstrate the value of their solutions. The RWDC provides students with opportunities to apply the lessons of the classroom to the technical problems that are being faced in the workplace.

The Challenge is FREE for students and teachers. Each teacher that signs up a team will receive $1 million in professional engineering software as well as access to mentors from industry, government, and academia. You may read more about the challenge and register your school team online at www.realworlddesignchallenge.org.You may also contact Susan Peterson, K-12 STEM Outreach Coordinator, @ shpeters@olemiss.edu with any questions.
