The Inspired Classroom Challenge (IC Challenge) is an interactive platform that teaches the process of problem solving by presenting students with real world problems and connecting them to experts during virtual, live events. The platform and interactive distance learning events engage students of all ages in critical thinking, solution finding, and action planning.  IC Challenges give students a voice!

Students and teachers work in teams to collaborate with classmates and experts-- researching, discussing, finding solutions, and interacting in real time. They think critically and creatively while brainstorming problems and solutions and analyze their work with criteria they establish together.  The platform develops their digital literacy skills and provides a forum for students to communicate their decisions about chosen solutions.
