Solving World Problems in 48-Hours
Invent for the Planet (IFTP) will challenge you to put your theory into practice by
solving real-world problems. You will focus on developing products to make the world a better place for the inventors
of tomorrow. IFTP aims to motivate student innovators, entrepreneurs and creative
thinkers to come together, apply design thinking, and find solutions to difficult
and wide ranging problems. You will form teams of 3-5 students and work to design
and prototype a solution for a wide range of global concerns. At the same time, students
from across the globe will be tackling the same issues, allowing you to collaborate
and learn from peers all over the world. Mentors will be available and the teams will
present their solutions to judges for a chance to win more than $500 worth in prizes.
