Solving Problems in 48 Hours
Aggies Invent is a 48 hour intensive design experience offered at the Engineering Innovation Center (EIC), a 20,000 square foot rapid prototyping lab. The format of the experience is to engage 60 or more students in multidiscipline/multi-level teams in hands on projects that will push their innovation, creativity, and communication skills. Each event will have a specific theme and will be designed in collaboration with industry and faculty. At the final presentations, Aggies Invent teams will compete for cash awards. 1st place – $1,000, 2nd place – $750, and 3rd place – $500 per team.
The end goal is to provide students the opportunity to acquire skills essential to becoming successful innovation leaders and support them in founding startup companies.
