When you, as a Rebel undergraduate or graduate student, sign up for this challenge, you will soon learn: this is not just a technology challenge for techies -- it is an idea challenge for all of us.
This career-changing experience will lead you to form teams of Rebels, and together your team will invent a solution. Maybe your team will identify a significant social issue to solve; or launch the development of a new business or nonprofit that can take root and thrive; or invent an app that fosters a sustainable improvement in the socio-economic factors that drive or hinder this city; or maybe you will come up with a brilliant idea for an expansion of the arts to achieve a greater benefit for everyone, residents and visitors alike.
The challenge is what we offer. The idea is up to you.
As always, teams are best, simply due to the effectiveness of teams in solving major problems. If you don’t have a team, though, that’s fine! We will help you build a team. And we want all Rebels -- all majors, all disciplines, all backgrounds, and all students -- to participate. We have defined the problem; it is up to you to find the solution – one that could win a significant cash prize, and even a life-changing path for your future.
