Imagine Cup is a student technology competition hosted by Microsoft. The competition is open to high school and college students, and draws top international talent. Seattle University Project Center students Peter Daughtry, Alvaro Martin, and Jesse Sharp with faculty oversight from Professor Adair Dingle and sponsor leadership from Microsoft's Kent Foster and Hilary Pike created an app for hand held devices for voting in the People's Choice aspect of the competition. The competition is on now, and the Worldwide Finals will be held in July 2011. So check out the app, download it for free to your device and get involved with Microsoft Imagine Cup 2011!

The Project Center

Working as a faculty advisor on student projects helps me to expose my students to an entirely new range of skills that they will need when they become practitioners in their chosen fields. Project management, teamwork, communication, translating academic knowledge to reality are skills that set our students apart. The partnerships we’ve built with sponsoring organizations provide valuable professional connections for students and faculty alike.
