On March 30-31, 2017 fifteen competitively selected teams converged at Georgia Tech for the 2nd annual competition. 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, Agrospheres from the University of Virginia, took home a $15,000 prize. Virginia Tech’s team, Tech Wound Solutions, was runner up and Georgia Tech’s team, Cautery Guard, was “the peoples’ choice.” Information about each of the projects is available at http://acc.coe.gatech.edu/.
The 3rd annual competition is scheduled for April 5-6, 2018. For more information, contact Chris Reaves at firstname.lastname@example.org.
