National school competition
For the NSEW 2014 out-of-the-box ideas challenge, we asked students to envision the world of the future!
In the year 2114...
Students thought about what the world will be like in 100 years and then shared with us a vision of a development they thought would have come into practice. These included new products, scientific, technological or medical advancements and designs to help deal with demands on natural resources.
Almost 10,000 students participated from over 200 schools! Submissions included posters, collages, graphic designs and photos of models, and they were judged by a panel based on how innovative, researched and well-presented they were.
