Looking After Our World
Join the IBM EdTech Youth Challenge and help impact what matters to you in our World.
General Competition Overview

Teams of students and teachers present compelling projects where technology helps solve existing or imminent problems facing society. Project ideas receiving the highest scores will have access to experts from IBM and our partners to transform ideas into solutions that can be used in communities across the world.

We invite teachers and their students, IBM employees, and IBM partner organizations that are passionate about looking after our world to join an upcoming challenge. You'll have the opportunity to create solutions to help improve our communities through technology expertise and emerging technologies (e.g., Cloud, AI, Blockchain, and so forth).
