The Institute for Materials Research is hosing a weekend innovation challenge with a prominent industrial company this weekend (January 27-29).
They are inviting about 25 undergraduates to develop concepts to improve a commercial product. The scope of work is to develop a concept that is cheaper, lighter, and simpler to use than the current product. Students will self-assemble into teams of 3 to 5. Each team will come up with a presentation and prototypes (physical and/or virtual) to be presented to an industry partner on day three. Teams are competing for cash prizes and awards as the best weekend design.
Three-day program (January 27th – 29th, 2017)
- Friday 5-8pm: Pitch, team selection, project planning
- Saturday 8-5pm: Concept development and down selection
- Sunday 8-3pm: Build solution, prepare pitch
- Sunday 3pm: Pitch concepts
- Sunday 5pm: Awards presentation
Students will have flexibility Saturday and Sunday to come and go throughout the day.
The challenge will take place at Ohio State’s Materials Innovation space at 1381 Kinnear Road, Columbus, OH, 43210. If interested, please fill out the sign up form.
Northwestern University’s Materials Research Science and Engineering Center is offering a 9-week paid summer research experience for undergraduate students.
