Pitch 2 Panel Showcase
This student showcase shares with the Monash community the inspired, bold, and sustainable futures we all want for our cities.
What is Pitch 2 Panel?
Monash Tech School has partnered with John Monash Science School to provide skills development and real-world thinking opportunities for Year 10 students.
Pitch 2 Panel encourages students to apply STEAM practices with entrepreneurial solutions to real-world problems. This term's Pitch 2 Panel prompted students to explore sustainable technologies and urban planning to help an industrialised city in crisis.
The top 8 teams pitched their design to a panel of industry and academic experts. Students then earned a digital badge that verifies the skills they developed as part of the Pitch 2 Panel experience.
