The Solutions Lab is a new Honors College program, which offers students the chance to grapple with pressing social, economic, and environmental problems and develop innovative solutions. In order to be successful, participants must implement the skills they have gained through their interdisciplinary training and experiences collaborating in teams through the Honors College. Participants must also be able to think critically and quickly on their feet—while participants will be given the topic of the Solutions Lab beforehand, they will be given a specific prompt 48 hours before they must present their solution to a panel of judges.
For the inaugural Spring 2019 Solutions Lab, all Honors College students have been invited to apply to represent their house in the competition. The solutions will be presented before a panel of judges on February 23rd, 2019, who will award the winning Solutions Lab team $800, 800 House Points, and the Solutions Lab Trophy.
