The Imagine Cup 2011

IC_logoLearn new skills, meet new friends and quite possibly change the world. The Imagine Cup is the world’s premier student technology where competitors put their ideas into action through their creativity and innovation to help solve some of the world’s toughest problems – such as education, environmental sustainability, healthcare, disaster relief and more – while competing for cash and prizes. Students compete in one or more of several competitions, including Embedded Development which challenges students to develop their own embedded devices and go beyond the desktop working in both hardware and software to build a solution using Windows Embedded Compact 7 on a provided embedded device. You have until Jan 9th to register your team and define your proposed project.
 
IC11_Embedded_LockupIf you’re having trouble defining a project, check out Imagine Cup Solve This, which provides a marketplace of real-world problems submitted by intergovernmental organizations (IGOs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and non-profit organizations from around the world. You can choose a project from the Imagine Cup Solve This Library, or you can focus your creative energies on a social cause that matters most to you.
