"Students will have to identify community challenges resulting from COVID-19 and then develop a plan to help address them," explained Tyler Seville, executive director of Innovation New Jersey, a supporter of the NJSPN. "It is a great opportunity for high schools to engage and think critically about their local community as well as become familiar with their state legislators."
Students, in their final presentation, will need to prepare a communication plan to address the challenge that their community is facing and present their solution to the policymakers. The solution has to be data driven which will include the researching the data and include the adversaries they may anticipate in their proposed design or solution. The solution can include designing a prototype or designing an app or a website or an urban planning map to address the problem.
