After an intensive two-week programme, Solve It closed on high spirits for both students and sponsors this year. Solve It invites students to create solutions to pressing environmental, social and business problems for leading organisations. This year those organisations were Hynds, Auckland Transport and Auckland District Health Board.
During these two weeks, students work on fully empathising with the problem, formulating their ideas, testing, prototyping and refining their solution before pitching it to a panel of judges from each organisation. Each challenge had a winning team that received $5,000 and a runner up team that received $3,000.
