The hub’s futuristic, high-tech experience incorporates virtual and augmented realities, as well as interactive competitions. Kids explore the challenges of water, food and energy at one of three half-globes, where they play games, take on a robot quizmaster and collaborate to build the city of the future.
The challenge comprises a digital platform – which can be shown on a school’s digiboards – and the Bright Ideas book. Children can use the latter to gain inspiration and sketch their ideas. A jury that includes popular vlogger Dylan Haegens selects the winners, whose ideas will be rendered and visualized in virtual reality for the world to view through VR headsets. Winners will also be on display during the Generation Discover Festival in October. The Bright Ideas Challenge is consistent with the core learning objectives set by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. By following the Bright Ideas online curriculum and visiting the hub, students are introduced to science and technology in an interactive and engaging way.
