'By the year 2050, students who graduate from high school in 2015 will be in their early 50's - whereas babies born in 2015 will be 35 years old.


The high school students who engage in this challenge will address the learning needs of our next generation of creative problem solvers as well as their own.


Students (staff and designers) will be challenged to propose creative and innovative job scenarios aimed at purposeful actions as they prepare for an entrepreneur-based career in the near future.


In addition, learners will engage in meaningful steps towards reversing previous adverse practices resulting in stabilizing balanced ecosystems in the year 2050'.
