SPRINT Week 2021

This week saw Year 10 solve real-world problems and complete team challenges as part of SPRINT Week. Read on to hear from our Year 10 Media team and watch their summary video!

This week, all Year 10 students participated in Sprint Week, a problem solving program created and utilised by Google. Students were put into 30 teams, and each group had a real life company and problem to work with. The aim was to use “10X thinking”, and come up with innovative solutions that address the issue now, and well into the future. Each day brought a specific part of the process, from exploring the problem on Day 1, to pitching the solution on Day 5.

The process also involved working with subject matter experts, or SMEs for short, who are employees and industry experts from the Sprint teams’ respective companies. This year's partners included Netflix, Universal Music Australia, Two Good Co, and many more. To break up the week, students also participated in Learn & Earn challenges, where they completed different physical challenges, puzzles, games and educational activities to earn themselves more points.

When asked for a single word summary of the week students responded with descriptions such as “innovative”, “collaborative”, “teamwork”, “fun”, “exciting”, and “challenging”. Overall, the week was challenging but exciting, and gave each student insight into how real life problems are solved in a range of industries.
