Our pitch:

XPRT aims to develop and pilot a digital tool through which experts from any field can easily volunteer in teaching a subject at school. It could be anything - creativity, solar power, climate change, robotics etc. 

Not only would this be motivational for students, it would also brilliantly support their learning. The goal is to create an application that is simple yet fully functional and would help all teachers across Finland.

About Your Solution

What makes our solution innovative:

XPRT combines similar logic than ride sharing services and dating applications to connect experts to school communities. Through XPRT educators can contact experts from different fields and invite them to share their knowledge in the classroom. At the same time this allows parents (experts) to be more involved with school community.
