Details:
The LCPS Challenge has been designed to bring innovative technologies and strategies to LCPS to help solve some of the school system’s “hard-to-solve” problems. After conducting research, interviews, and one-on-one discussions, we’ve identified 4 main areas:

  • Safety and Security
  • Administrative Decision Support Systems
  • Developing the 21st Century Classroom
  • Technology and Tools to Support Education Solutions

The LCPS Challenge will include guest speakers and live demonstrations of all of the Finalists’ solutions to be judged by a panel of LCPS stakeholders, academic, and industry leaders. The awards will include:

  • Most Disruptive Technology
  • Most Innovative Technology
  • Future Innovators (an award for students only)

A series of Collaboration Sessions will be hosted by the ISC. The first is scheduled for June 25th at the ISC Emerging Technologies Event at Microsoft. For more details about the LCPS Challenge and how to participate, go to the LCPS Challenge Call for Solutions Application.
