Banding together, U.S. college and university students work with local nonprofits to overcome unmet community needs. In this Ford College Community Challenge anniversary year, 10 partnerships go global ranging from building a solar-powered watering system, to refining a small utility vehicle’s design for farmer’s use.
High school students from academies in Ford NGL Communities and Powered by Ford STEM Academies were challenged to identify an innovative solution to a challenge within their community using a STEM approach. Many answered the call, and six teams with the most outstanding proposals received up to $20,000 to implement their ideas.
