This year’s ACC Inventure Prize Competition features undergraduate inventors from 13 universities. All 13 of their 3-minute pitches will air on PBS in at least six states. The hour-long broadcast (up from 30 minutes) includes judges questioning the top 5 presenters and a brief report on the commercial success of several winners in previous years. The presentations are amazing! I urge you to tune in.
Most premieres are this week, Wednesday, April 21st. Specific times in each state are listed below. If you miss the broadcast, the 3-minute presentations (but not the judges’ comments and retrospective) will continue to live on the prize website (https://accinventureprize.com/).
