Cambridge hosts IoT tech challenge

Cambridge university hosted The Future Engineer Youth STEM Maker UK Challenge 2018 on its renowned campus. Teams of young people from China and the UK aged from 9 to 16 took part in a series of competitions focusing on a range of activities, including imagining how the Internet of Things could transform people’s lives in the decades ahead.

The aim of the event was to promote education innovation, reform personnel training models, and develop scientific spirit, innovative thinking, creativity, and social responsibility throughout the education process. The competitions included ‘Science Drama’ where teams had to come up with their technical vision of life in the year 2038; a science fair featuring projects tailored to solve problems encountered in daily life; and ‘Internet of Things’ Creative Design Race where students could use equipment to build models showing how the Internet of Things will impact on homes and cities.
