The Case School of Engineering will host the Saint-Gobain Student Design Competition finals on Wednesday, April 1, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Tinkham Veale University Center ballroom.

Guests can vote for their favorite team; the team with the most audience votes will win a $500 award. Food will also be provided at the event.

The Saint-Gobain competition encourages students from across schools to design and build a prototype device that takes an existing material and, using principles of materials science and engineering, create a new and innovative use for it that solves a problem for society.
