Feel free to think outside the box (and screen). Projects ideas can be a service, app, website, physical product, or any combination of the above. Teams can pitch their ideas by sharing slideshows, demoing on a screen, acting out their idea, or by sharing whatever other kind of prototype has been created.
Each team will have 3 minutes to pitch their ideas to the judges.
