Conrad Challenge - 2020 Virtual Innovation Summit (Rescheduled) 27 May - 29 May 2020 Virtual, Florida

Conrad Challenge Rescheduled

2020 Virtual Innovation Summit

As the world continues to cope with the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, the Conrad Foundation is dedicated to creating the Virtual Innovation Summit to celebrate the 37 Finalist Teams. While the Innovation Summit plans must be adapted, it does not, and will not, diminish the accomplishments of these teams who have worked incredibly hard over that past 9 months to create solutions for local and global challenges.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS: Wednesday, 27 May – Friday, 29 May 2020

The 2020 Virtual Innovation Summit will feature a variety of segments available to all Finalist Teams, coaches, judges and partners. These include Cosmic Chats with our sponsors, special sessions with the Alumni Leadership Council (ALC) and the award ceremony. In addition, the Summit will feature break-out sessions for each category to host Q&A sessions with all of the Finalist teams and our expert panel of judges.

To ensure our students have the appropriate time and resources to prepare for the final round of the 2019-2020 Conrad Challenge, all Round 3 student submissions (Executive Summary, Video Pitch and Proof of Patent) will be due Monday, 11 May by 11:59 p.m. EST. Once all submissions have been reviewed and scored, the 2019-2020 Conrad Challenge will culminate in the 2020 Virtual Innovation Summit, 27–29 May 2020.

Conrad Challenge

The Conrad Challenge, in partnership with the Conrad Foundation, and AIAA are proud to partner to bring science and technology studies to life through a student-driven, project-based approach. The challenge gives students between the ages of 13-18 the chance to become entrepreneurs and apply innovation, science, and technology to solve problems with global impact. Here are some of our success stories and our alumni that are helping to lead the next generation of Conrad innovators!
