Ready, Set, Solve is a fun, applied learning challenge that invites post-secondary students to solve small, but real, sustainability and climate change challenges in the capital region.
Municipalities, not-for-profit organizations and institutions in the capital region face unique challenges in working towards their climate action and sustainability goals.
Post-secondary students have a fresh perspective, relevant skills and knowledge and are looking to gain practical experience, build networks in the community and direct learning to the topics about which they are most passionate.
Ready Set Solve aims to connect inter-disciplinary teams of students with local government, non-profit organizations and institutions to address these challenges and provide real solutions for the region; it’s a win, win, win situation!
Congratulations and thank you to the 2016 Ready Set Solve sponsors, Hosts and Student Teams for making this year's challenge a great success!
