How Aggies Invent Works

Aggies Invent, held in the Chevron Rooms of the Zachry Engineering Education Complex, will challenge you to put your theory into practice by solving real-world problems. You will interact with professional and graduate student mentors, be supported by professional maker staff, have access to an outstanding facility and new technology and find solutions around roadblocks. You’ll collaborate with other innovative students to build something amazing and most of all, have tremendous experience!
