Young Jewish Innovators Challenge

The Young Jewish Innovators Challenge invites 9th and 10th-grade young women to use creative thinking and problem-solving skills to seek solutions to real-life issues that impact our community. In this new 12-week program, students will work in teams and compete against other young women in Chicago Jewish high schools.

Participants will learn through both in-person and remote experiences, including:

  • Virtual presentations and live sessions

  • Panel discussions with experts in the field

  • Independent and guided research with mentor expertise

  • Application of halachic issues to innovations

  • Field trips to industrial and research innovation science labs

  • Exposure to the financial and investment processes of start-up companies

Don’t miss this opportunity to collaborate with scientists in industry, explore private laboratory and innovation spaces, and apply problem-solving skills to solve real-life problems!

Awards include cash prizes and more!

Registration for our new cohort opens in early September 2023. Check back for details.
