OCAD U Environmental Design Student Anna Pogossyan heads to Berlin!

 

Tuesday, October 30, 2018 - 7:30am

The main goal of this competition was to come up with an idea that would benefit students and campuses around the world. All ideas were presented in short, 60 second long videos, outlining the main problem and a proposed solution in a form of a pitch.

Winning teams from each country are now presented with funding, mentorship, space, tools and materials to further develop their projects and create first prototypes. In our case, we are envisioning it to be an arduino-based motion sensor and an app, reading the information real-time. We understand that technical ins and outs might and will change, so a lot of issues will be resolved during the prototyping stage within the next 30 days.
