Creative Design Challenge
Established in 1991, the Creative Design Challenge is a premier science and technology competition where the engineering and technical skills of NJ high school students are put to the test. In recognition of their hard work, winning teams are awarded special category prizes, as well as scholarships to be used exclusively for college expenses.
Panasonic's long-term partner in this program is the New Jersey Institute of technology (NJIT). While the majority of program funding comes from Panasonic, NJIT makes significant contributions to this outreach event. Three student interns develop the Challenge, while NJIT staff score the written reports, as well as provide judges for the performance and oral presentations of the Challenge. NJIT also lends its prestige as a top engineering university.
