What is SDC?

They then create a concept and prototype a solution to fit the requirements of the problem. Everything comes together in the third week for final judging.

How does it work?

The competition is spread over three weeks. During the first week, competitors ideate and design their concept. Competitors can use the second week to implement a prototype of their idea. Everything comes together in the third week for final judging.

What do I need to participate?

Participation is absolutely free! All you need is a computer, some spunk, and a handful of good ideas.
