Next summer, [email protected] will return to transform undergraduate students into inventors as they design, prototype, and pitch original devices. The immersive invention accelerators will be held on campus and at the Fisher Center in New York City. For the first time, the program is open to all SU undergraduate students.
Learn more about this exciting opportunity at this general information session! Pizza will be served.
A collaboration between Syracuse University’s College of Engineering & Computer Science and VPA School of Design, and supported by Bill and Penny Allyn, [email protected] follows a proven method of developing students’ abilities to innovate and communicate. Students will learn about design, ideation, and intellectual property, then conceive an original invention, prototype the invention, and refine it in response to weekly feedback from diverse audiences of guest evaluators. Check out last summer’s inventions at invent.syr.edu.
Forty undergraduate students will be accepted into the program—20 for a cohort at the Fisher Center in NYC and 20 for a cohort on the SU campus. In addition to a chance to win up to $5,000, students will receive:
- A $1,000 stipend
- A $1,000 budget per team for project materials
- Guidance from expert consultants and evaluators
- Access to laser cutters, 3D printers, a machine shop, and professional machinists
