So next week the finalists of the Young Movers Competition, 40 young learners from ten schools around the country, will be travelling to Gauteng SABS Design Institute for a 5 day long intensive Design Session.
During the week they will be exposed to experts in the Design Industry, helping them to take their idea into action. The Design Institute guides them in design principles. They will learn how to do the ever important 30 second elevator pitch (you never know which billionaire investor you might ever share an elevator with!).
The finalist will also enjoy a day out and about visiting the the Planetarium and the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre.
Ending the week in an all day pitching marathon, where each learner will have 10 minute to pitch their now polished concept and business model to a panel of judges.
The three winners will each receive a tablet jam packed with design apps as well as the fantastic opportunity to work with the Design Institute to further research and develop the possibility and feasibility of their products.
