This year the task challenged our students to really think about Sustainable Development Goal 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production) and find an old item in their house to hack and turn into something else to be reused instead. Our students got creative and thought about what else they might be able to reuse around their house, to help get in the spirit for the hack!
Taking part in the Hacking Challenge involved learning more about Responsible Consumption and Production, and how students had to consider:
Why did you chose this household item to hack?
What did you use as inspiration for your hack?
Do you think you will reuse more items in the future?
Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's NAE-MIT Hacking Challenge our NAE-MIT students rose to the challenge, learning about sustainable living and using their ingenuity and creativity to hack an old household item into something new! We received a huge number of submissions and would like to congratulation our winners who were chosen based on an amalgamation of: Student survey, Quality of their answer to the 3 'Hacking Questions', VA & DT teachers vote, and ingenuity and creativity.
