2018 North by North Youth Track
“WHAT IS NEEDED TO REALIZE HEALTHY SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES IN ALASKA THROUGH AND BEYOND 2030?”
2018 Alaska Youth Innovation Challenge
Alaska Pacific University would like to invite student teams, in 9th-11th grade to participate in teams of 2-4 in the 2018 Alaska Youth Innovation Challenge, a part of NorthbyNorth (NxN). The Youth Innovation Challenge is an all day Design Sprint with Rapid Prototyping aspects modelled after a Hackathon. The topic for this year’s challenge is “Arctic Residential Design”. We challenge you to imagine the opportunities in planning, developing and living in cold climate environments, and to conceptualize alternative approaches to sustainable housing.
Why? Reliance on expensive fuel heating systems and dated thermal technologies demands a change in the approach to cold climate development and living. We NEED your ideas!
