This makes it more difficult to understand where to put your time in pursuing academic competitions.
With limited time and limited resources it can be hard for parents, educators, and students to know which competitions to take on or even what educational competitions are out there!
Students are challenged to develop scientific research projects in three overarching areas, Global Healthcare, Global Sustainability, and Global Environment.
Then students present their work to industry innovators currently transforming the scientific landscape.
