TCC Announce Wearable Technologies Challenges and University Participants

The TCC will hold a 2 day Wearable Technologies Workshop on April 27 & 28, hosted by the NASA Johnson Space Center.

On the first day of the workshop, university student teams will demonstrate proof-of-concept prototypes developed to address challenges posted by BP (3 challenges), Kimberly-Clark, Klim and the NASA Johnson Space Center (3 challenges).  Up to 29 university teams can be assigned to these 8 challenges.

As of today, 6 universities have registered to participate in the April 27 program – Pratt Institute, San Jacinto College, University of Alaska Fairbanks, University of Minnesota and Virginia Tech, projecting to have 21 student teams assigned to the challenges.  Universities can begin requesting assignment to challenges on Monday, January 6, with slots to be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, until all slots are filled.

The TCC is continuing to accept university registrations, until enough teams have been registered to fill all of the challenge team slots.

Also, the TCC is extending the deadline for companies and other organizations to submit their challenges – with the final deadline now set for Friday, January 10.

Planning for the April 28 Presentation Day will begin in January, starting with a Call for Program Committee, followed by a Call for Presenters and the opening of registrations for the workshop.
