Imagine Cup 2011 can provide the extra spark to inspire your students and
help them realize their potential. Through Imagine Cup, sponsored by
Microsoft, student teams create innovative technical solutions for some of
the world’s toughest problems. In the process, they:



   - Acquire knowledge that aligns with curriculum goals in your course.
   - Get access to software to help them excel with technology.
   - Gain valuable industry connections and resume-building experiences.
   - Achieve recognition for themselves and their college, university, or
   high school.



Faculty mentors require no special training—just an interest in helping
students succeed.
