Imagine Cup Jordan 2011 – Round 1 Results are out!


We had a tremendous and exciting 2 days last week as we listened to the Imagine Cup Round 1 presentations. The creativity, IQ, and hard work was clear and inspiring – using cutting edge technology from Kinect, Cloud, and Windows Phone 7. From over 300 registrants and 30 teams this year, only 6 teams will go to Round 2. These teams are listed below.
