Innovation in Aging event is March 4

On March 4, 2020, from 4 to 6 p.m., the STEM Innovation Center will be hosting a student idea competition called Innovation in Aging. This competition challenges UW-Green Bay students to create solutions to combat hardships and improve overall quality of life for an aging public. The team with the best solution will receive a cash prize. Prizes include $1,000 for first place, $500 for second place, $250 for third place, $100 for the people’s choice selection, and a $100 prize for the top five student organization teams.

The competing teams will be in groups of three to five participants. Teams will be practicing with mentors from Feb. 17 to 21 in preparation for the competition on March 4.

UW-Green Bay is partnering with WiSys to organize this event.
