WHY?

Gwinnett’s Innovation In Action Expo is a unique opportunity for students to showcase where innovation meets entrepreneurship through their Science, Engineering, Technology and Computer Science projects. The Gwinnett Science, Engineering, and Innovation Fair wants to showcase the best projects that have taken the next step and embraced a real-world application. The Expo challenges exceptional students to go public with their ideas and showcase their innovative thinking from inception to application. We are challenging students to “Ask WHY” and transform their wonderings into innovative solutions that impact their community.

HOW?

Projects considered Innovation in Action must be science, engineering, or mathematics based research.  Students will have thought deeply about the WHY? behind their project. Students will have identified a real-world issue or need and developed an actual or prototypical solution. Innovation projects and applications will be reviewed digitally via innovation application and video “pitch” application for panel of judges “sharks”.
*Live pitch sessions will not take place this year.
