Idea to Impact

Welcome to the Idea to Impact Student Challenge

The Idea to Impact student challenge is open to all Ventura County students in grades 6-12 and engages student teams in a collaborative project focused on real-world issues related to energy and the environment. Working with an educator mentor, the teams develop their project while engaging in meaningful and relevant learning experiences. Leadership skills are developed as students use science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM fields) integrated with the arts to make a difference in their communities as they move their innovative solutions from idea to impact! The Idea to Impact student challenge represents a partnership between California State University Channel Islands and the Ventura County Office of Education along with community business partners.

Idea to Impact project details are provided in the information packet. (PDF, 1.2MB)
