Invent for the Planet
Invent for the Planet is an Intensive Design Experience which engages students at different universities around the world and tasks them with solving some of the world’s most pressing problems in just 48 hours.
Run by Texas A&M University, students work in local teams to develop and present possible solutions to challenges such as food security, waste management, energy consumption, and flooding.
In 2018 Swansea was one of just 14 universities worldwide invited to participate in the inaugural Invent for the Planet. 25 students from across the College of Engineering worked in four teams to develop ideas, prototypes and elevator pitches which were presented to a panel of expert judges.
