Welcome

Since 2017, the Conrad Challenge Nigeria has been an annual event challenging students to work collaboratively in teams and apply STEM principles in coming up with innovative ideas with market value. Each year, the best team from the Nigerian challenge represents Nigeria at the Conrad Challenge global finals at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, USA. Three teams have proudly done so till date, and two of them have gone on to win their respective categories, edging out teams from other parts of the world.
