ChangeX Challenges are designed for young people who want to change the world. If you’re a teenager (or if you work with one) who recognizes that there are big problems facing humanity and wants to make a difference, ChangeX is for you. This experience will put you on the fast track to develop the skills you’ll need to maximize your impact, get out of the classroom and do something real.
NO. ChangeX is designed to require no previous experience before the challenge begins. You will be required to build at least two prototypes of your idea over the summer, but this doesn’t mean we expect flashy robots and slick apps. The primary purpose of an early prototype is to prove that your idea solves the problem, not that it’s technically feasible. (Many companies have failed because they build expensive products, only to realize after launching that no one wants them.) In fact, some of the best prototypes are extremely low-tech. Don’t believe us? Check out this TED talk from Google’s Tom Chi.
