Imagine Cup is a global competition that empowers the next generation of computer science students to team up and use their creativity, passion and knowledge of technology to create applications that shape how we live, work and play. Every year tens of thousands of students from across the globe compete for cash, travel and prizes and for the honor of taking home the Imagine Cup!

World Finalist teams prepare to compete

The Imagine Cup is all about students bringing their best technological solutions to the global stage to compete and potentially change the world. This year, in addition to the $85,000 first-place prize, three special $15,000 awards were introduced for the best projects in Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, and Mixed Reality. Student teams have risen to the challenge with their projects, which include an AR/VR platform that allows engineers to provide holographic 3D help, a toy car that can detect and provide therapy to kids with ADHD, a non-invasive device to help measure fetal health, and many more.
