EduTech Challenges

for the brave ones

Education isn't simple right ? But it has a broad spectrum of areas where it can be improved and innovated! So it's up to you to change the future through education! We have a couple of ideas:

  • Digital literacy
  • Personalised learning
  • Alternatives to grading
  • Alternatives to traditonal school
  • Robotics / Coding
  • Adaptive learning algorithms
  • Mobile learning
  • Game based learning
  • Team learning



This year Modex is challenging one team to take on a special project called Educational Portal : online grades catalog, portal for parents and professors, homework, schedule and help for students.

The team that develops this challege will benefit from all Modex infrastructure & blockchain DB and future mentorship and incubation at Modex HQ to develop this into a fully fledged startup.

How awesome is that ? 🤩
