What is the #DigiInventorsChallenge

The #DigiInventorsChallenge, in association with Andy Murray and the Digital Health & Care Institute is on a mission to find smart new ways to help Scotland’s young people keep active, staying healthy and happy, now and in the future. 

This is where you come in!

We want you to play a part in helping reverse the trends that have led to young Scots being rated as having one of lowest activity levels in the world. With your help, we can change the habits that are setting Scotland up for a lifetime of ill health.

How to get involved

In teams of four to six, supported by at least one adult mentor (over the age of 21), we want you to develop an idea that will help young people participate in the active management of their health, fitness and wellbeing, using digital technology. We’ve all heard of apps that analyse diet and mood, watches that monitor heart rates and games that promote exercise. What new idea can you come up with?

Mentors should register to the challenge here. Once registered please email your application to Applications should try and follow the challenges criteria to make the most of ther idea. The challenge Privacy Notice details how we will protect and use any information we receive.

You can find more information on how to get involved among the downloadable resources for the #DigiInventorsChallenge including this year's School pack.

''As a professional tennis player, I use digital health technology every day to monitor my performance and inform my training regime. But digital health technology is not just for athletes. It has the potential to help everyone understand their health needs and goals better, and make better choices. By taking part in the #DigiInventorsChallenge we want you to use your experiences, your creativity and your digital skills to develop one big idea that you know will make a difference to you and your classmates.”
