On Nov 14, GT-RNOC and the Institute for People and Technology (IPaT) hosted the Fall 2018 Convergence Innovation Competition (CIC), a competition that encourages Georgia Tech students to create innovative products across a set of categories, such as Health & Wellness, Smart Cities & IoT, and Sports & Fan Experience.
In partnership with the Global Change Program, a new category called Climate Solutions was added to the Fall 2018 CIC to channel the intelligence and creativity of Georgia Tech students to help develop climate change solutions. The goal of this category was to encourage students to develop practical solutions that can help limit carbon emissions and curb climate change.
Student participants created 17 prototypes on topics ranging from food and nutrition to travel. Some of our favorites from the Climate Solutions category:
We're grateful to GT-RNOC Directors Russ Clark and Matt Sanders for openness to include the Climate Solutions category in the Fall 2018 CIC, and we look forward to continuing to work with GT-RNOC and IPaT to grow the Climate Solutions category for future CICs.
