The Build It Better Design Challenge will be a one-day startup competition that exposes high school students to the basic skills of entrepreneurship.
Participating students will be divided into teams, and local experts will guide the teams through essential stages, including planning, designing, building, and marketing. Final products will be evaluated by a panel of judges, and the members of the winning team will each receive a $100 scholarship.
Build It Better Design Challenge is open to Piscataway resident high school students in grades 9-12. Registration is limited to 25 participants. Please register online or by calling 732-463-1633 ext 6. Lunch will be provided for participants at this all-day event.
This competition, including scholarships, is made possible by a generous donation from Piscataway resident George Tsacnaris, and in partnership with ManufactureNJ, Rutgers University and Soldering Sunday.
