About Young Creators League
Young Creators League is platform that gives high school students an opportunity to convert their ideas into such solutions that brings a positive change to their immediate surroundings. It is an initiative by Plaksha University that lets students take charge and address local problems.
We are opening a "Tech Quest Innovation Challenge" for students from Class 8 to Class 12. Under this challenge students submit a solution, in the form of prototype (or proof-of-concept), to a local problem they identify with. The solution should be such that it makes a significant impact to their surroundings. They use 5 design thinking steps to arrive at the solution (students are mentored throughout the process by Plaksha faculty.)
Empathize | Define | Ideate | Prototype | Test
All participants are ‘Ambassadors’ of their city and stand a chance to present at Grand Exhibition at Plaksha University.
Top teams receive an exclusive invitation to Young Technology Scholars Program.
