Could your students ages 13-14 and 15-18 use technology to make a positive difference to society in 2023, plus win incredible prizes for themselves and your school? Find out in the Alexa Young Innovator Challenge!

Amazon are asking young people across the UK to create and code a ‘Skill for Good’ for Alexa, helping to address the societal issues that matter most to them, from climate change to homelessness and gender equality.

Tackle the challenge with the help of Amazon’s FREE resources and coding walkthrough film, helping students explore artificial intelligence as they learn to use the MIT App Inventor website to code their skill.

This challenge is ideal for STEM Clubs or lessons, plus students can enter from home. The FREE Sharing with Families Toolkit has everything you need to share the challenge with your school community and inform parents about how to get involved.

Enter before midnight on 3 March 2023 for the chance to win fantastic prizes, including £2500 worth of tech goodies for the winning student and a £2500 donation to your school. 20 runners up will also receive a £250 Gift Card and a £500 will be donated to their school!*
