FIDA is proud to have supported four teams to compete in the MIT Solv[ED] Youth Innovation Challenge. Solve is an initiative of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that seeks to solve global challenges of sustainability through engaging young people in social impact innovation projects. They invited teams of young people to submit their ideas for a technology-based solution to an unmet social, economic or environmental need. ‘Technology’ is defined in the broadest sense – the solution could be high-tech, such as a robotic device or a piece of innovative software, or it could be low-tech, such as introducing a particular plant to an aquatic environment to reduce pollution. FIDA coordinated and supported two teams from Alva Academy and two from Dollar Academy to submit their ideas. The students were competing against 800 entries from around the world, involving participants up to the age of 24, and the experience gave our FIDA entrants a valuable taste of developing ideas that can make a real impact in tackling global problems.
