If students are interested to participate, they should contact the ACM RMU Chapter President, Mohammed AlJaser at email@example.com
Listed below are the rules and description for the event itself:
Before the event:
- Form your team, choose your challenge and talk about potential solutions. Assign roles and responsibilities within your team based on each member’s talents and interests. Consider what other teams might build and whether your solution will stand out.
During the event:
- There is limited time to build your solution, so wasted moments may affect your outcome. Be honest and critical early on, that way, you’ll have time to course correct, if necessary.
- Talk to the the Mylan coaches and ask for advice
- When the buzzer sounds, you’ll have 5 minutes to present your solution. The cutoff time will be strictly enforced.
- Teams will draw numbers out of hat to determine presentation order. Determine presentation roles – e.g., who will speak, who will run the laptop – in advance.
- Designate one laptop as the presentation machine. Test loading material on it before you present. Make sure you can connect the laptop to our projector; we support VGA and HDMI.
- Bring clickers or laser pointers with you, to help speed up the presentation process
