Georgia Tech hosted the first annual ACC Innovation Competition on April 15-16, 2016. Fifteen universities sent competitively selected teams to Atlanta. In the preliminary round all 15 teams were given 5 minutes to “pitch” their invention before a panel of alumni judges. The five highest ranked teams repeated their pitches during an hour long PBS show broadcast live in six states. The winning team from Duke took home a $15,000 prize. Virginia was runner up and Georgia Tech was “the peoples’ choice.” Information about each of the projects is available at http://acc.coe.gatech.edu/.
Georgia Tech has generously agreed to host the 2nd annual competition on March 30-31, 2017. For more information, contact Chris Reaves at firstname.lastname@example.org.
