A Transformative Educational Experience

The Conrad Challenge brings science and technology studies to life in a student-driven, project-based approach. No theoretical tasks here. Students are engaged in problem-based learning rooted in real-world, relevant challenges that don’t necessarily have a clear answer.


We give students between the ages of 13-18 the chance to become entrepreneurs and apply innovation, science and technology to solve problems with global impact. Guided by teachers and industry experts, the competition becomes a master class in collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and communication. The result – students with the 21st century skills needed to thrive in the workforce and new innovations that have the potential to change life for the better… on the individual, national and global level.

Students, teachers, experts and sponsors all agree… the Conrad Challenge is unlike any STEM competition out there. This isn’t a science fair. It’s an innovation competition that is creating the next generation of entrepreneurs who are going to change the world!
