This third annual student idea competition calls on UW-Green Bay student teams of three to five to present their ideas for improving the quality of life for aging populations. Winners receive a cash prize.
Preparing budgets can be a bedevil experience for beginning—and experienced—researchers. In this session, you will learn how to craft a budget justification that not only conforms to sponsor expectations but also effectively establishes the credibility of the proposed project.
Curious about research? Join WiSys and the UW-Green Bay Grants & Research Office for pizza and discussion about ways to get involved in undergraduate research and creative activity on campus. Faculty mentors and undergraduate researchers from different disciplines will share their experiences.
The Prototype Hackathon was launched to engage students to design innovative product prototypes and demonstrate their commercial relevance. Student teams have two structured days to design and build a prototype. After the build days, the teams improve their prototype, conduct market research, and craft presentations for the culminating event and dinner on April 24.
This session will explore key factors that determine whether grant collaborations produce precious “wins” or painful “losses.”

The Prototype Hackathon comes to a close as student teams present their project presentations to a panel of judges. Winners will be announced during a dinner reception.
