Clemson University’s Grand Challenge Scholars program is thrilled to announce our first annual Design-a-thon competition! This virtual event will be held the weekend of February 19th-21st 2021. 

Design-a-thon is a marathon-style event (similar to hack-a-thon) where students gather to design, engineer, and build solutions to address this year’s chosen theme, Future of Work. Each team will focus on one of four tracks: joy of living, health, security, or sustainability. Throughout this event, we will have guest speakers, networking events, workshops, social events, and prizes.
