About this Event

The Event

Join fellow high school students from around the state in this three-day event consisting of:

  • An 18-hour design sprint hosted at AU — complete with on-site subject matter experts, fact-finding and idea formulation, a feedback session, and three complimentary meals.
  • 2 weeks for your team to create a prototype solution
  • A pitch night to present your prototype to a panel for a chance to win $1000

The Problem

Our title sponsor, Green Opportunities, is seeking a solution to a major problem.

There are over 1 billion pounds of coal slag produced annually by Duke Energy’s Edwardsport, IN plant.

Here’s what you need to answer: “How might they divert as much material as possible out of their landfill and into other beneficial reuse applications?”

Overnight Design Sprint: January 24 @ 6PM to January 25 @ 12 PM

Cost:

$75 per team with 3-5 members. Each team will need one adult sponsor/chaperone.
