Introducing

Project Canary

Pitch your tech ideas during this annual hackathon and turn it into a reality with professional guidance. Submissions are due by January 22nd!

Project Canary

Project Canary is Genxl's annual hackathon. Students grades 3-7 will pitch a video submission, a maximum of 5 minutes long. The video submission should consist of the students pitching an implementable solution to one of the 17 UNSDG goals. 

 

Students will work individually. The submissions for the ideathon will be due on January 22nd, and students may work on the project until then. Projects will be judged by a panel of experienced high schoolers and advisors. The top 3 teams will be ranked on the Genxl website. Read the next section to learn about awards. 

 

Why ask kids? They’ve got boundless creativity and have the ability to think outside the box. We want to nurture this imagination and help grow golden ideas.
