Kicking off each year at Blue Planet's Student Energy Summit, the Energy Innovation Design Challenge tasks students across the state with developing and testing prototypes of real-life energy innovations. Students team up to create three- to five-minute videos showcasing their solutions, developed using the design-thinking methodology they learn at the Summit. A panel of distinguished judges—comprised of educators, community leaders, and clean energy experts—selects the winning team, who receives a $2,000 scholarship for educational advancement.
