Imagine Cup is the world’s largest student technology competition. This annual competition inspires students to create innovative solutions to solve world’s toughest problems as defined by the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals. Imagine Cup is like a technology Olympics with students from around the world competing in a number of categories.
Students, educators and industry have been enthusiastic supporters of Imagine Cup. In April 2010, Imagine Cup US Finals keynote presentations were by James Cameron (Director of “Avatar” and “Titanic”), Craig Mundie (Microsoft’s Chief Research and Strategy Officer), and Karen Cator (Director, Office of Educational Technology, US Dept. of Education).
In this 4 minute video, Michelle Obama motivate 325,000 students from 125 countries – “with a little imagination we can find solutions to our challenges”. Research shows that educators find students solving real-world problem more engaged in learning (download pdf of research or Brochure).
