2nd Annual UCLA Innovation Week

  • July 16, 2013

The BSC co-hosts UCLA Innovation Week to kick off the school year with an entrepreneurial buzz for faculty and students! This year, Innovation Week will take place during the first week of fall quarter from September 30th to October 5th and feature guest speakers, networking events, and an INVENTATHON competition. Stay tuned as there are more details to come.

At this time, we are  soliciting medical needs for INVENTATHON, which will be held on Friday 10/4 and Saturday 10/5 of Innovation Week. The theme for INVENTATHON will be “new embedded devices for medical needs.” This event will be an intense 24 hour race where student teams will develop solutions for medical need using microcontrollers, sensors, software, and more. This is very similar to a hackathon, but with an additional hardware design challenge.

Submit your medical need for the design challenge today (deadline is August 30th) and let a team of motivated students develop a solution for you!  Please send ideas and questions to bsc@mednet.ucla.edu . To view a flyer, click here.
