    2011 MICROSOFT IMAGINE CUP FESTIVAL

    AUCKLAND, 12th APRIL

    Join us at the 2011 Microsoft Imagine Cup Festival and be inspired by our next generation of IT Professionals. This year you will have an opportunity to meet some of the most passionate and creative students building real technology solutions to problems we face today. Fighting mosquitos using lasers, using brain waves to control lights and appliances, and unmanned helicopters to help deliver aid, are just some of the innovative ideas you will see at this year’s competition.

    The Microsoft Imagine Cup is a global student technology competition that encourages students to tackle the toughest problems facing the world today whilst applying the latest technologies. More than 1500 students have participated in this year’s New Zealand competition.

    Attend the showcase for a vibrant marketplace style exhibition of the top 20 teams. Then watch the finals as the top 4 teams compete for the winning spot. Lastly, celebrate with the teams and network with the ICT industry at the Microsoft Imagine Cup Festival Party. There will also be over 100 spot prizes up for grabs, including 2 XBOX Kinect's and a Windows Phone 7 Device, so reserve your seat today!

    Come on down and support your local Teams.
