How it works:

Invent for the Planet follows the Aggies Invent format — teams are formed based on similar interests in a need statement. The teams then research the topic and come up with a plan and build a simple prototype.

On the final day, each team puts together a video and presents its prototype to a panel of judges. Three teams are selected for first, second and third place prizes.

The first-place teams from each university will then have about a week to perfect their pitch before submitting a new video that will be judged remotely for a chance to be named the first-place winner overall.
