The Saint-Gobain Student Design Competition is looking for student teams with innovative ideas. The design competition offers a $9,000 grand prize to the team that best creates a prototype device that takes an existing material and, using principles of materials science and engineering, creates a new and creative use for it that solves a problem for society.
There will be a speed-networking and informational session about the competition Thursday, Sept. 25, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Tinkham Veale University center, Ballroom B.
In this session, attendees will learn more about the competition and how to apply. Attendees will also have the opportunity to speed-network with other students interested in participating to help form teams. All undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to participate, as well as Cleveland Institute of Art students.
