The Bright Ideas Challenge
What will cities look like in 2050? How will they be powered to be vibrant, healthy and clean places to live? The Bright Ideas Challenge, Shell’s cross-curricular schools’ competition, invites young people aged 11-14 to use their creativity, problem solving, teamwork and STEM skills to devise innovative solutions that could power cities of the future.
The Bright Ideas Challenge 2020-21 is now closed!
