Polymer’s Head of Strategy Andrew Coward was invited to judge at the NSW Department of Education’s inaugural Game Changer Challenge. The Challenge saw over 100 primary and secondary schools from around NSW convene at the Department’s brand-new headquarters in Parramatta to present their idea for the school of the future.
Australia’s unprecedented population growth means that as cities densify, new vertical, tech-enabled schools will be the way of the future. Indeed, Parramatta’s own Arthur Phillip High School will be one of the first high-density schools in Australia. The new school is currently under construction and is due for completion in late 2019.
Along with Adobe, TrickyJigsaw and the Department of Education, Andrew judged eight ideas from the secondary school teams. It was an inspiring day and there were some fantastic presentations and innovative ideas presented to the judging panel. The lucky winner was the team from Carenne School, Bathurst.
