Students from all over the world are competing to change the world, with computer games. The Microsoft Imagine Cup finals will be held later this summer in Australia where students tackle the theme "Imagine a world where technology helps solve the toughest problems."
Imagine Cup is a student technology competition with three types of competition, software design, Game design for Xbox or Windows computers and Game design for phones. Every year, student competitors present creative technology solutions that address real-world challenges, and many of those solutions are in use today.
"It´s our world's future innovators and technology leaders, our planet looks to you to lead the way in solving some of our greatest challenges. Lead with your mind and also with your heart, as both are required to make a difference," says Jon Perera, Microsoft, General Manager, Academic Programs.
