The MIT SciTech 2019 is happening on April 19-21, and this year's theme is “Envisioning the Future: Cities of MENA.” Within the topics of Energy, Innovation, and Infrastructure, the conference will explore the problems, perspectives, and potential solutions that will help revolutionize the cities of the Middle East. The vision of SciTech is to create a global network of students, entrepreneurs, researchers, and innovators who are interested in using both science and technology to help change the region.
Introduced last year, The SciTech Exhibition is a great way for participants to engage with organizations and companies to create partnerships and explore career opportunities.
In addition to the Exhibition, the event will also be introducing the SciTech IDEAthon in 2019 - an idea pitch competition for teams in each of the main topics: Energy, Infrastructure, and Innovation.
The hackathon-style IDEAthon is a unique SciTech experience that will run in parallel to the main conference. Attendees who choose to participate in the IDEAthon will be divided by topic and will work in teams to pitch their solutions to a panel of judges and the entire audience. Winners will walk home with cash prizes.
