2019 COOLTECH CHALLENGE OVERVIEW

The 11th Annual CoolTech Challenge engages teams of up to three rising 9th through 12th graders in a peer-to-peer school-based competition. There are four categories for submissions this year.  There are three general categories for the most unique and impactful 1) interactive app 2) mobile ready website 3) a concept for either of the two. In 2019, thanks to the presenting sponsorship from MCPc, there is a new and fourth category which is a Cyber Challenge. 

For the three general categories, students are encouraged to be as creative and innovative as possible and to think about how their ideas and projects can have an impact on a business, a community, their family or their daily lives. The fourth category is specific to the challenge and is detailed along with other information in the 2019 Rules and Regulations document found here.
