The John Carroll University ideaLab is an idea contest open to all undergraduate students in all majors. The ideaLab is in three parts:
Part One: The ideaLab workshop will be held on Monday afternoon, February 18th at 4:00 p.m. in the O’Dea Room in the Lombardo Student Center. At the workshop, you may try your idea out on judges who will critique it. A three minute “elevator pitch”, followed by the judges comments is the format. No need to have your presentation finalized, this is a test run to see what you need to do to be competitive in the next step.
