The College Inventors Competition is now accepting entries for 2016. This is a national event, so inventors from all over the United States are entering their ideas. This event is for people who are looking to impact the world and make changes through ideas. It is a great way to gain recognition for your ideas, especially since some of the ideas in the past have been featured in Forbes, Popular Science, USA Today, and even the U.S. News and World Report. Inventors also have the opportunity to network with National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees and innovation experts like Eric R. Fossum and Spencer Silver (the founder of Post-It notes) to name a few. There is also the opportunity to connect with other innovators and discuss ideas. The winners from last year created a dual pressure respiratory system and the second place student invented a way for early cancer detection. The range of entries was impressive and the array of universities was equally impressive. This event could be a great way for mechanical engineers at Lehigh to bring awareness to their ideas and even win cash prizes. Be sure to check out their website and keep innovating!!
