The RAC Imagine Program: Futures Challenge - Term Long Interschool Competition

The RAC Imagine Program™ Futures Challenge is a term-long project-based learning experience that features a hackathon-style excursion followed by virtual weekly masterclasses. Students will explore and design their own unique and innovative solutions to the real-life challenges faced by the WA community.

Over the past 30 years our cities have changed dramatically. With an increase in technology access, diversity, and global connectivity, our cities have continued to grow and evolve with us over the past 30 years. As our population continues to rise, the transport industry is rapidly evolving with the integration of alternative fuels and cutting-edge technologies.

The RAC Imagine Program™ Futures Challenge will see students work in teams to create innovative community based initiatives that focus on how we move around. Their mission will be to enhance their local communities with innovative transportation components, aiming to create a safer, more sustainable, and connected forward-thinking city. The Futures Challenge is designed and delivered by BOP Industries in partnership with RAC.

Here is a clip showcasing the inaugural Futures Challenge in 2023:
