RSVP in Handshake!

On Monday, April 22, Emily Shuki from Dyson’s philanthropic arm the James Dyson Foundation, will be visiting MSOE to talk to you about Dyson, the design process used by a global company to invent the Dyson vacuum, Supersonic and Airwrap and the James Dyson Award. She will also run a rapid prototyping workshop that will challenge you solve a problem addressed by a previous James Dyson Award winner using Dyson machinery parts. If you are interested in Dyson, engineering, design and/or have an idea or invention that solves a problem and are interested in winning $35,000 please come to Campus Center Multipurpose Room.    

Sir James Dyson is looking for problem solvers!  
The James Dyson Award is an international design engineering competition which rewards socially conscious, innovative students and recent graduates for developing meaningful solutions to real world problems. The brief: design something that solves a problem.    The best invention internationally is selected by Sir James Dyson and is awarded $35,000 prize money. Two international runners up receive $5,000 each and $2,500 is given to the winning project from each of the 27 participating countries.   But it’s not just about the cash prize. Through extensive media exposure many of our previous winners including Petit Pli, expandable clothing for children to reduce fashion waste, Mimica, a bio-reactive food label to reduce food waste, and MANTA, a wave energy converter, have secured opportunities to turn their ambitious inventions into commercial products.
