Love competition? Want to practice your analytical, problem solving, and presentation skills? SUS and SCI Team are presenting the Science Case Competition so you can come up with the solutions for a global health crisis
The goal of this event is to give students the rare opportunity to apply their research skills to find solutions to a pertinent global issue. Students are expected to not only address the topic from all possible areas of science, but to also consider the ethical, social, and economic implications of their proposed solution. Students will tackle the case in teams of 3-5 and present their solutions to a panel of UBC professors who will critique and score each presentation. The team with the highest score wins!
To ensure that all participants have the same amount of preparation time, teams will receive the case topic, detailed instructions, and marking rubric one week before the presentation date. Only those teams that have registered and confirmed their attendance will receive the case details.
