$5000 Y-PRIZE COMPETITION 2012
Kick-Off Event 5:30 pm on September 10th, 2012 at Wu & Chen Auditorium, SEAS

The Y-Prize Competition gives students the opportunity to propose applications for research solutions developed at the University of Pennsylvania. This year's competition theme will be "robotic technologies". Various robotic technologies are studied and developed at Penn's General Robotics Automation Sensing and Perception (GRASP) laboratory. Students may work in teams or individually to formulate a practical application for any of Penn's innovative robotic technology. The competition allows students to gain experience in engineering, robotics, design, business and working in multidisciplinary teams. At the conclusion of the competition, participants will present their application to a panel of judges where they will be competing for a chance to win $5000.
