The 24-Hour Think Challenge’s second year focused on something near and dear to the heart of students: relevant, 21st century learning. One hundred and fifty students from 32 southwest Idaho schools gathered October 1st and 2nd to take a hard look at where Idaho is headed, and bring student voice into the conversation about what’s next in learning.
The 24-Hour Think Challenge was a community conversation and design thinking challenge. The two-day event engaged 153 students from 20+ high schools across the Treasure Valley. The diverse group represented rural and urban schools, Go-On schools, and students representing the “forgotten 50.” Their challenge? To learn about, examine, and offer new ways to address big complex issues relating to education, life, STEM education and health.
