Innovate to Grow is the annual showcase of UC Merced student ingenuity and entrepreneurship. 2017 will mark the sixth annual Innovate to Grow event, encompassing the following three signature threads:
· Innovation Design Clinic (IDC): Graduating engineers work on capstone design projects identified by community partners;
· Engineering Service Learning (ESL): A cornerstone experience that delivers real-world solutions to nonprofit partners; and
· Mobile App Challenge (MAC): Cross-disciplinary teams pitch their software solutions to help solve societal challenges
Everyone – the campus community and the public – is invited to attend and see the amazing results of these projects.
The work these teams perform will have long-lasting implications, not only for the students and partnering organizations, but also for the wider community, the state, the nation and, potentially, the world.
