The NeuroMaker Creative Challenge is an annual, open design competition for Middle and High School students which runs twice a year, in June and December, to coincide with the spring and fall semesters. This competition is open to students around the world in order to investigate the connections between Biomedical Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Programming and more.
Students select a problem to investigate from a theme announced by the NeuroMaker judging committee. Students form teams, conduct research on this problem, build a prototype and then virtually submit their results in a short scientific report and video.
The committee will select six finalists, three from middle school submissions and three from high school submissions. Each group of first, second and third place finalists respectively receive $1,500, $750 and $500 and recognition from Harvard and MIT alumni educators and scientists. Five additional awards are available to teams that recognize important engineering and personal growth traits such as empathy, creativity and perseverance.
