National Undergraduate Global Health Technologies Design Competition
Rice 360's annual global health technologies design competition is open to undergraduates from universities across the country. Each year, approximately 20 teams of undergraduates present on technologies they have designed to address global health needs. Teams are judged on how clearly they articulate the global health need their technologies seek to address, as well as on the technical and social feasibility of their proposed solutions. Judges from industry, medicine, and academia also consider each team's plan to overcome technical and social hurdles associated with their technologies. The 2013 competition included two teams from Jimma University in Ethiopia. Registration for the 2014 competition will open in December 2013.
