Invent for the Planet

February 15th-17th, 2019

Invent for the Planet is a 48-hour Intensive Design Experience (IDE) that engages students at different universities around the world on a single weekend to solve high impact, global problems. Invent for the Planet will be held/hosted in over 20 Universities across the globe simultaneously. Each group will start on Friday, February 15th. New groups will join the race to innovation as time travels across the world. Student teams will work on provided design challenges in local teams and will be encouraged to connect with teams across the globe as they come online. Devils Invent will be hosted in the Generator Labs (ECG 100-Tempe campus) and use the surrounding eSpaces and 3D print lab.

The event is open to any and all students at ASU with a passion to work towards solving global problems related to the following themes: waste management, food security, environment, education, digital technology, agriculture, and medicine/medical systems & delivery.

We want to challenge all levels of students to explore innovation, creativity, and teamwork. This is a very supportive and safe environment to challenge yourself to push boundaries. We encourage risk, expect failures, and cheer with you for your successes. Freshmen-Ph.D, all majors and skill sets are welcome.
