Invent For The Planet
Invent for the Planet global challenge has been held in AASTMT Smart Village Campus February 2020 for the second time after 2018. Invent for the Planet is hosted by Texas A&M University and it is a 48-hour intensive design competition, which took place at more than 30 universities around the world. Students developed solutions for major issues facing society that have arisen as our world continues to modernize and become more populated. Over the course of two days, students at each campus formed teams, developed a plan and prototype, created a business plan and pitched it to a panel of judges.
These students activities and challenges cultivate the ability of the students to communicate and work effectively in teams and also to teach students how to analyze and implement interdisciplinary engineering projects.
