RULES OVERVIEW

The 2022 TDI Challenge is open to all young people aged 14-19. It is an opportunity to showcase your creative talent to an industry that relies upon vision and innovation.

We need you to come up with your own design for a new product or concept, explain its application and produce a video, no longer than 2 minutes, to demonstrate how and why your invention will benefit users.

You can use your Design and Technology coursework from school/college for your entry or you can enter a completely different idea if you prefer. Cardboard mock-ups and CAD models are all accepted.

EVENT TIMELINE

This event will happen on the 13th July 2022 at Yamazaki Mazak facility in Worcester. Judges will pick several finalists from the video entries by the end of May 2022.

These finalist will then be notified and invited to come and present their idea/concept in more detail at an event with a winner being chosen on the day.

Innovate Today and Help Shape a Better Tomorrow

Innovation is helping to shape our world like never before, therefore we want young people to be as bold and original as possible. In doing so, they will be showcasing their own talents and helping to promote some of the great work taking place in our schools and colleges. They’ll also be helping the manufacturing technologies industry better understand the challenges that education faces and how it might provide assistance.

Having my modular mobility aid win the TDI Challenge has been an amazing experience. The competition is a great opportunity to show off your passion for your work and to see other students’ projects. The application process is simple but made me think deeper about future developments I could make to my project if I were to grow the product. Winning has really boosted my confidence and has also been helpful when applying to engineering scholarships and work experience, and in future it’ll help me when applying for a placement year.
