Verizon 5G EdTech Challenge

Building the classroom of the future.

The Verizon 5G EdTech Challenge is a nationwide open call to find the most innovative technologies that will transform middle school education. In the fall of 2018, NYC Media Lab led an open call to secure over 150 applications across three program tracks:

  • Student Readiness and Engagement

  • Teacher Training

  • Personalized Supports

In 2019, 10 Challenge winners will each be awarded a $100K grant, and will partner with Verizon to develop and test their solutions in the 5G environment. Challenge winners will also have the opportunity to trial their products in select 5G-enabled Verizon Innovative Learning middle schools throughout 2019.

Selected teams will be announced soon.
