Civic Challenges Solved

The Civic Challenges

In the first year of CivTechSA, COSA canvased departments to identify civic issues and put them into a Civic Problem Bank. Through rigorous scoring, COSA selected several civic challenges for the Residency Program. The remaining civic challenges were distributed throughout the 6-12TH Grade and University-level Educational Programs as well as the Entrepreneur Program.

 

Additional challenges will be released for the program’s second year. Stay tuned for more information.
