Demo Day

30 Aug 2019 from 9:00am - 1 Sep 2019 until 1:00pm

Teams have been hard at work to develop proposals for the Grand Challenge and now you can see their creative and innovative responses to the following questions:

  • How might we reduce the health risks that certain species of mosquitoes pose to humans?
  • How might we lessen the nuisance factor imposed by urban and invading mosquito populations?

Come along to see innovation and multi-disciplinary teamwork in action as our students, staff, alumni and the wider community demonstrate their proposals to this perplexing problem.

Stick around for the Pitch Competition from 1PM in the Godfrey Tanner Bar to help determine which team will take home the People's Choice Award and the Judge's Choice Award.

To find the venue for this event, go to the campus map.
