The purpose of the Student Tech Showdown competition is to integrate International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards for Students into research and presentation skills. It is a chance for students to showcase research, digital citizenship, collaboration, communication and design skills using technology. A team of two to three students will compete against teams from other schools.

In accordance with the design thinking process, students will be given a challenge. The challenge will be to create a presentation on the spot based on previous research from the given scenario, incorporating the randomly selected apps. Students then interpret the design challenge, and ideate as a team. Next, students begin building their presentation. After the first draft of their presentation, students will have the opportunity to give and receive feedback from other teams. They then consider this feedback and evolve their presentation.
