The Y-Prize Competition gives students the opportunity to propose applications for research solutions developed at the University of Pennsylvania. This year's competition theme will be "robotic technologies". Various robotic technologies are studied and developed at Penn's General Robotics Automation Sensing and Perception (GRASP) laboratory.
Students may work in teams or individually to formulate a practical application for any of Penn's innovative robotic technology. The competition allows students to gain experience in engineering, robotics, design, business and working in multidisciplinary teams. At the conclusion of the competition, participants will present their application to a panel of judges where they will be competing for a chance to win $5000.
How to Participate
Participation is open to all students, including those not affiliated with Penn. Your team, must however be comprised of at least one Penn affiliated member.
