You don’t need to do it all yourself. We’re here to support you in explaining the core PSC concepts to your students. The PSC online classroom introduction will help your class to get started with the challenge and will save you time.

You can make your class unique and memorable by having one of our PSC task phases scheduled for your teaching semester. PSC phases are independent, sequential tasks that are an integral part of the yearly challenge. All you need to do is to let us know when you teach and when you’d like the phase to start. We’ll take care of everything.
Your students will distinguish themselves by participating in an interactive curriculum exercise with international exposure and the opportunity to collect certificates and awards.
