ITK/AITP Student Chapter promotes Imagine Cup

ITK/AITP invites you to participate in the 2011 Imagine Cup competition, billed as the World’s Premier Student Technology Competition!  Beginning with local and regional competitions, Imagine Cup 2011 comes to an exciting finale at the Worldwide Finals held this year in New York City, United States. …. Overall, the idea is to show how technology can help solve the world’s toughest problems. And the solution? Well, that’s entirely up to you—and your imagination.

Students can compete in any or all of these five exciting categories:
Software Design – Develop an application that helps solve one of the world’s toughest problems.
Embedded Development – From mobile phones and GPS units to electronic switches, develop an embedded system or device that addresses a critical issue.
Game Design – Multilevel or single player, 3-D or 2-D, web, Xbox, Windows, or phone, it’s up to you. Everybody wins with games that solve real world problems.
Digital Media – Go viral with your music, videos, or photos. Come up with the hottest new problem-solving idea in digital media.
IT Challenge – Show what you know about architectures, Microsoft technologies, and IT issues and earn the right to compete at the highest level. The first round is simply a 30 questions IT quiz. Why not test your IT knowledge? You can enter individually and take the quiz from the comfort of your computer. Do not miss this easy entry point to the Imagine Cup competition!
