Scheduled for Saturday, November 7 at the Homer A.

With a strong experiential-based learning component, the day-long conference includes learning workshops, innovation contest presentations, and a student program launch.

Oceanit’s Raviraj Pare and Sumil Thapa will put the students’ problem-solving skills into action with a design thinking challenge at the event. The challenge is aimed at encouraging critical thinking through a variety of lenses, including an understanding of economic and policy dynamics, as well as technological and engineering considerations.
