China Thinks Big (CTB) is a research-oriented social innovation challenge which originated from a collaboration between Harvard and Tsinghua University in 2012 and has since expanded to become one of the largest high school social innovation programs in China. Advisors and partnerships from more than fifty universities and institutions and thousands of teams from across the world participate each year. Prioritizing learning and skill acquisition, CTB aims to provide all participants with a strong academic foundation, beginning with a series of meaningful online learning modules, developed by Harvard College students, which cover each step of the project. Learning and applying the information provided by these modules is strongly recommended, as they prepare teams to meet CTB standards and build skills critical in university and beyond.
Congratulations to all on a job well done!
