The Dumfries and Galloway da Vinci Decathlon Challenge is a bi-annual schools competition and a way of working with schools to develop skills for learning, life and work. Conceived and developed by Knox Grammar in Sydney, Australia to engage young people in highly complex challenges which encourage excellence and extensive use of higher order thinking skills, team work, time management and creativity, it is based upon 10 disciplines that Leonardo da Vinci is most famous for.
