Innovation Challenge 2013-14
All N.C. A&T undergraduates are invited to form small teams in a competition of creativity and ingenuity. Teams are challenged to create something new and different -- a product, a device or a new way of doing something. Entries are judged on innovation, practicality, and benefits of the innovation, and other criteria. Click here for information on the 2013 challenge.
