    Design and pitch your own mobile application to better the world!
    Learn and apply the Design Thinking method and explore how innovation changes and shapes the world.
    Students will use the engineering design process to develop an App using MIT’s app inventor. They will explore the technology involved in app development and learn about design techniques to make an app successful. Students will enhance their oral and writing skills by pitching their idea to peers and judges from across the Queen’s Community and give and receive feedback to their peers.
    Engineering Innovation is a partnership program between Queen’s Engineering Connections, the Dunin-Deshpande Innovation Centre and Queen’s ESU.
