The 1st Annual YOU Innovate H-SC

Innovation Tournament

Do you think you have what it takes to innovate an ordinary household object? 

The Flemming Center is excited to announce its first YOU Innovate Tournament. Put your entrepreneurial knowledge, skills, attitudes, and networks to the test. Students, faculty, and staff—individually or on a team (max 5)—are invited to create, measure, and communicate as much value as possible from an everyday "mystery" household object using only the resources made available to you. You may use as much or as little of the raw materials as necessary. Be sure to capture your journey by documenting it on video as you transform and pitch your product.
