THE LORA SCHOOLS CHALLENGE
Thank you for your interest in the Tasmanian LoRa Schools Challenge!
The LoRa Schools Challenge is a supported initiative of the Tasmanian State Government. On the 14th of July 2017, Michael Ferguson MP officially launched the LoRa Schools Challenge, an Internet of Things (IoT) ideas competition for Tasmanian schools. Link to press release.
The competition is now open to students in primary schools, high schools and colleges around Tasmania to submit ideas through our forms below.
In parallel the LoRaTAS team is working closely with the Department of Education to coordinate the delivery of the project in Term 1 2018. Competition closes at the end of Term 1 with winners select and ideas implemented in Term 2.
Information sessions to support this will begin in early December 2017 for primary and secondary school students in help them prepare their ideas for Term 1.
So stay turned for information session details.
At the conclusion of the competition, three winning schools will receive a LoRa development kit and support from Enterprize Tasmania to further explore using IoT in the classroom.
We'll be releasing more information about this competition over the coming weeks, including sharing resources for teachers and details on when the competition will open and close.
