Invent for the Planet 2019 at Kent State

Friday, February 15, 2019 - 4:00pm to Sunday, February 17, 2019 - 4:00pm
Aeronautics and Technology Building

We welcome you to Invent for the Planet. This 48-hour intensive design experience (IDE) engages students at different universities around the world on a single weekend to solve high-impact, global problems. Invent for the Planet is based on the highly successful program at Texas A&M University called Aggies Invent.

Kent State is pleased to be joining the team of universities around the world for this high impact, design and engineering event. We will begin at 4 p.m. local time on Friday, Feb. 15. New groups will join the race to innovation as time travels across the world. Student teams will work on provided design challenges in local teams and will be encouraged to connect with teams across the globe as they come online. The design challenges (up to 10) will be provided to students about one week before kick-off.

This event is a collaboration of LaunchNET Kent State, the College of Aeronautics and Engineering, and the Design Innovation Initiative at Kent State.
