The Ideathon will be held on April 5 and 6 and offers students the chance to create and propose digital solutions to campus issues, the chance to win $1,000 at the local campus competition and to develop a project portfolio (that you will get to keep!). This is an incredible opportunity for student clubs to develop technologies to serve their mission and campus, individuals to explore an idea they'd like to see used on campus, or simply a great way to build a portfolio project.
The competition is open to teams of 2-5 enrolled undergraduate and/or graduate students. Participants may not compete on more than one team. Each team must have at least one Team Member who will serve as the main contact for the team, will submit the idea, keep the team informed and will be the spokesperson on Competition Day. The competition is open to ALL students and all experience levels! Each team will be given access to training videos, a sandbox to experiment in, and the option to drop in to our training open house on April 3, two days before the start of the competition.
(Please note that at least one person from your team must be present at the Ideathon during the competition hours. (i.e. some teams take turns being at the Ideathon event while others work remotely).
