The first Weekly Innovation Challenge of the spring semester will be held at noon Wednesday, Jan. 23, in the rotunda of McDonnell Douglas Hall.
As part of the event, students are given an impromptu challenge and have one hour to compete. Whichever team completes the challenge successfully first wins $300 ($100 per teammate). Additionally, participants are asked to submit a weekly reflection on the challenge and one winner will be rewarded an additional $100.
Any SLU student can participate. Teams must consist of three members — including up to one faculty member — and all three participants must be from different majors. Students can either form teams prior to the event or just show up ten minutes early and the facilitators will match them up with others in need of additional teammates.
The events are sponsored by the Kern Entrepreneurship Education Network, the Coleman Foundation and Saint Louis University.
