  1. Creativity and Innovation

Creativity and innovation requires teams to think outside the box to find novel solutions to the problem at hand. Sometimes, the more elegant solution is not the most straightforward one.

Did the team find creative or new ideas to address the problem challenge? b. Did the team come up with a radical approach, or did they follow existing patterns and solutions? c.

The demo does not have to be perfect, but should be able to reveal the innovations of the team, and the potential of the prototype. a. Was there a successful demo of the solution created? c. Does the demo show the potential and use cases of the solution created? c. [Bonus] Was there thoughtful design about the usability of the solution? How will the UX and UI help the solution succeed, or attract users to the solution?

  1. Pitch

A good idea should be complemented with a compelling presentation to describe the solution to others hearing about it for the first time. A presentation does not have to be fancy, but should emphasize the key ideas employed in the solution. a. Was the team able to smoothly and crisply present their solution to the jury? b. Was the presentation compelling, engaging and persuasive? c. Did they respect the time limit of the presentation?
