Students - The iJET Challenge

Have you ever wondered what it was like to live during Biblical times, the Roman Empire, medieval Europe, Soviet Russia or during the establishment of the modern State of Israel?

The iJET Challenge is a competition where you will use the latest technologies to retell the stories of important figures in Jewish history as if you were there.

Each school can enter teams of 2-4 students, and each team will be able to use the information provided on this website to set off on a journey of discovery.

Your team will be challenged to produce digital content using different media and technologies to present the life experiences, thoughts and challenges of some of the most influential Jewish people that ever lived.

Entries will be judged by an international panel of judges and winning teams from each region will be presented with exciting prizes.

By studying their lives, the societies they lived in and the legacies they left behind, you will find out more about your own roots and what it means to be a part of the Jewish people.

We hope that through taking part in this project you will improve your independent and collaborative study skills, your technological skills and that you will find inspiration from these people who really made a difference to the world.
