What do we expect from you?

Your Invention

  • Devices do not have to be functioning. They only have to look like what the device would be.
  • Digital and mobile creations do not have to be function. Screen shots of what would be the app or program      would be fantastic!
  • We want to see that your team had fun and put effort into your team’s creation.

A Short 5 Minute Video

  • Remember to tell us who you are! Team name and individual team names.
  • Why is your device important and relevant to Cancer Care?
  • Who does it impact?
  • Is it a Point-of-Care device?
  • What does your prototype do? If it is a device, show us how it functions. If it is a digital app or program, describe to us what it would do.
  • Label all video files accordingly: teamname_productname_lastnamesofteammembers.mov
