Tuesday was the start of the Imagine Cup World Finals! Finalists flew into Seattle today and were able to check into their dorms, take a group photo and attend the reception at the University of Washington's Red Square. Catch up with John and Golnaz with their daily recaps this week for the Imagine Cup World Finals here in Seattle, Washington.
It is day 2 of the Imagine Cup World Finals and the heat is on! It is the first day of competitions with the start of the live presentations. Each team has ten minutes to present their project to a panel of judges, followed by ten minutes of questions and answers. Golnaz catches up with some teams after they finish presenting and we get a sneak peek into the dorm rooms where the students are staying for the week.
Today the competition took place at Microsoft and consisted of hands-on judging. Each judge spent fifteen minutes with each team, testing out their project directly. At the end of the judging we had a showcase for Microsoft Employees to come see the finalists and their projects. Also, John announces the winners of the partner awards.
Golnaz catches up with the teams from India, Canada and Korea while they present their projects to Microsoft Employees at the company showcase.
