The Innovation Challenge is open to all NAIT Students.
Interested in the Innovation Challenge? Not even sure what is involved?
Come to this information/ideation event to learn more about the challenge, what’s up with it and what’s in it for you!
If you have at least one friend and a smart phone that can take amateur video, you can put your creativity to work in NAIT’s Innovation Challenge presented by Raptor Mining, compete for prize money, and have a lot of fun doing it!
Teams are tasked with taking an everyday object that’s not worth much and transforming it into something of greater value—whether that value is economic, environmental, or social. So your idea could potentially turn into a lucrative commercial enterprise, or a way to solve a significant social problem!
The Challenge gives students the opportunity to experience some of the creativity associated with being an entrepreneur, collaborate under time and resource constraints, and pitch an idea in an engaging way.
How does it work? Teams that register by March 9th at noon will receive a message on March 11th, letting them know the object or concept they will be working with. Then they’ll have just a few days—until March 20th at 11:59 PM—to submit a three-minute video (MP4) pitching their innovation idea. Finalist videos will be shown and prizes awarded at a celebration event and video screening on March 26th at 4:00 PM where you will be treated like Hollywood royalty.
This event and competition open to current NAIT students only
