Event description

Description

We are looking for University of Calgary students! Don't miss your chance to take part in a unique opportunity to learn, innovate and create real-world solutions for better public accessibility. Accessibility is something that benefits everyone. As this is not always the case (think curbs, stairs, narrow doorways etc), let's find ways to innovate and improve!

CIC is an interdisciplinary competition based on education, innovation and collaboration between faculties at the University of Calgary. This year, by bringing together nine faculties from across the university, CIC creates an opportunity for students from a variety of backgrounds to gain complex, real-world experience in teamwork and problem solving over the course of a weekend. Each of the 12 competing teams are made up of 6 members, each member from a different faculty. Through short introductory talks, workshops, and support and mentorship from Ucalgary faculty and entrepreneurs in the Calgary community, the team members will work together to address the presented challenge and develop a solution using their diverse skills.
