If there was only one problem you could solve to change the world, how would you do it? That’s the question Disney along with XPRIZE are asking kids to think about with their new Big Hero 6 contest.
If you’re between the ages of 8 and 17 years old, create a video showing how you would use “S.T.E.A.M.” (science, technology, engineering, arts, or mathematics) and your creativity to solve a local or global problem. Your “big idea” could win you a trip to Hollywood, Calif. to meet the creative team behind Walt Disney Animation Studios’ new film Big Hero 6 along with the chance to walk down the red carpet at the film’s U.S. premiere!
The challenge runs from September 19th – October 12th, 2014. Register online today at: http://xprizechallenge.org/bighero6. Official rules are here.
From the contest website:
All this excitement and anticipation is inspired by Disney’s new action-packed comedy-adventure ‘Big Hero 6,’ in which the hero, um – Hiro Hamada, his robot Baymax, and a group of friends use their talent and ingenuity to fight crime and save their city. The Challenge inspires kids to explore their capabilities and imagination and strengthen their S.T.E.A.M skills, preparing them to tackle today’s challenges and grapple tomorrow’s opportunities.
