Over the past few months, students from around the UAE have been applying their creativity, skills, passion and imagination to “Imagine a world where technology helps solve the toughest problems.” They stepped up to the challenge and created some outstanding innovative projects!
For the readers who are playing a bit of catch up, here’s the deal with Imagine Cup: it’s the world’s premier student technology competition. Students from all around the world create projects that address the theme, and they are able to compete in various categories. For Software Design, we have a local round to select the best team to represent the country at the worldwide finals. The worldwide finals are held in a different location every year. In recent years, we’ve been to Egypt, Poland, USA…. and this year, we will be heading to Sydney, Australia in July!
The projects submitted by student in the UAE this year were of extremely high caliber. It was very difficult to select only the top 5 teams to advance to the Country Finals. Ladies and gentlemen, here are YOUR Top 5 Teams in the UAE:
- AEMA Creations – International School of Choueifat Dubai
- Craino – University of Wollongong in Dubai
- Geeks Inc. – BITS Pilani, Dubai Campus
- RevolUtion – University of Wollongong in Dubai
- Samazons – American University of Sharjah
These teams will be challenged to present their solution to a panel of judges on April 23. If you would like to attend the presentations, stay tuned to my next blog post where I will share the registration link with you.
We wish all the teams the best of luck!
