What they're saying

  • Seeing the students bring their ideas to life and interact with others sparked a new interest and enthusiasm as they explored happiness in a new setting. By giving these students an opportunity to step outside their class, the challenge has allowed them to connect with new ideas while showcasing their creativity.

Process

Design

Design

Students are provided with a Kalebr Challenge kit and begin to plan their innovation journey. In this phase students gather information through research and make key design decisions. The onus is on the students to take charge of the project here and use the scientific method and design thinking to ensure progression.

Make

Make

Students during the make phase get technical and assemble the Challenge Kit. Once assembled, the students get busy building a protective housing for their Innovation Kit to prevent accidental damage to their sensitive accessories. Next is the creative aspect where students individualise their innovation and give it "swag".

Code

Code

Students begin their #CodeLife using the intuitive Visual Coding Tool (VCT). The VCT is an innovation from Kalebr that allows students to make simple computer programs right from the get go. The Visual Coding Tool creates a knowledge bridge between real world and the abstract land of computer science, a bridge the students can easily cross.

Engage

Engage

Focusing on key 21st-Century Skills, the engage phase incorporates digital media, communication and presentation. Students use traditional and social media to promote their project and engage the community. Each Innovation team's projects gets its own web address and is open, upon registration for the world to view, interact and engage with.

Celebrate

Celebrate

The culmination of each Kalebr Challenge is an Innovation Celebration. At the celebration, Innovation Teams present their innovation to industry thought leaders, government officials and university professors with the aim of selecting champions in innovation, creativity, sustainability and various other real world themes.
