WiSys Quick Pitch deadline extended to March 22

Please encourage top students to enter the WiSys Quick Pitch, from 9 to 11 a.m. April 6 during the Academic Excellence Symposium. All UW-Green Bay students are eligible to showcase their creative and entrepreneurial spirit by presenting their research findings and/or innovative ideas through a “quick pitch” to a panel of judges. Students can register here. WiSys will host a two-hour training workshop prior to the competition for students to learn how to present their idea in a way that anyone can understand in less than three minutes. Students will also learn the importance of being able to present in non-confidential terms and to avoid disclosing patentable or proprietary ideas. Besides cash prizes for winning teams in separate Science & Technology and Social Sciences & Humanities, students will gain valuable exposure for their research project or innovative idea. Students will also learn to communicate their findings in an accessible way, sharpening important communication and presentation skills.
