Consumer Products Challenge 2019
More student teams are needed for the 2019 Consumer Products Challenge at Michigan Tech. The fourth annual event takes place Thursday through Saturday (Jan. 24-26).
Student teams competing in the challenge will receive a Challenge Box with items supplied by event sponsors 3M, Amway and Kimberly-Clark on Friday morning. After receiving their supplies, teams will have a finite amount of time to create a new consumer product. All Challenge Boxes include adhesive material, electronic components, absorption elements and additional sponsored products. The three-day challenge includes a product pitch, semi-final presentation and the final round. Judges will evaluate the products based on innovation, business model and its impact on the environment, society, health or safety.
The University community is invited to attend the final round of competition at 2 p.m. Saturday in Fisher 139. The top three teams will receive cash prizes totalling $4,400. Participation is limited to the first 24 teams to register. Teams must consist of three to five Michigan Tech students, and at least one team member must attend the pizza party kickoff event from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday in the Memorial Union Alumni Lounge.
