The MTA has launched the 2018 edition of its competition for design, technology and engineering students: the Technology Design and Innovation (TDI) Challenge sponsored by Close Brothers. Previous winners and participants have used the TDI as a springboard into the industry, with last year’s winner in the 17-19 age category, Halimah Ershad of Forest School in London, receiving an undergraduate scholarship to the Dyson School of Engineering.
The TDI Challenge 2018 has four categories, and is open to anyone in the UK who has created an impressive design, technology or engineering project within school: individual student aged 14-16 (GCSE/KS4/BTEC L2); individual student aged 17-19 (A-Level/BTEC L3); student group (three to six members) aged 14-16 (GCSE/KS4/BTEC L2); student group (three to six members) aged 17-19 (A-Level/BTEC L3). The competition is free to enter, and students can win prizes including an iPad, GoPro, UE Boom Speaker, drone plus many more. Closing date for entries
is 11 May.
