2011 IDEAS and MIT GLOBAL CHALLENGE AWARDS CELEBRATION
Monday, May 2 – 7:00pm at KRESGE AUDITORIUM on the MIT campus in Cambridge MA
CONGRATULATIONS to the 2011 IDEAS Competition and MIT Global Challenge teams! A record 45 MIT student-led teams entered their innovative public service ideas addressing underserved needs in water, sanitation, agriculture, education and much more. Many of undergraduate and graduate students have been hard at work for the last eight months to enter this year. The Salud del Sol and MIT IIH collaborative Solar-Powered Autoclave is one of the teams.
Meet all the teams at 7:00pm in the lobby. Celebrate their work. Learn which teams will win part of the up to $150,000 in awards this year. We’ll be joined by President Susan Hockfield, our keynote speaker Dr. Akhtar Badshah (MIT Alum) and other special guests.
