This challenge is ONLY AVAILABLE for participants in the Duke University Summer Session. To apply for the Summer Session, see the information on Duke's website here.

Participants in Duke Summer Session benefit from a range of learning opportunities throughout their experience on campus; however, some participants want to go beyond what they learn in their courses. Some students want to challenge themselves to apply their new-found knowledge to solving real problems. For these students we offer the Summer Research Competition.

This competition challenges you to take the information you have learned from your summer courses and conduct a research project extending what you learned to solving a real-world problem.

The Summer Research Competition’s theme is the future of technology. Internet connected technology is pervasive throughout our lives and it is safe to say that our lives would not be the same without it. Technology helps us in nearly every industry. We are connected in ways not dreamed of just 10 years ago. We use technology to achieve goals, meet deadlines, produce products, generate revenue, and even save lives. However, with the increasing use of this technology comes increasing challenges. Data privacy, security, socio-economic concerns, emotional challenges, digital divides, and much more are all becoming major issues in our digital society. Through the Summer Research Competition you are tasked to explore how our increasing reliance on internet connected technologies will pose challenges in our future. You must first research and define the challenge, then use your new found knowledge to design and propose a solution to help solve it.

To compete, you will submit your research project in a written report by August 21, 2020.  Reports will be reviewed by a panel of experts from Duke University’s community, giving each competitor valuable feedback on your analytical skills.  All participants with complete submissions will receive certificates of recognition from Duke University.  The top submissions will receive awards based on an analysis of how you defined the problem and developed your solution.

Additional details will be provided to all students upon arriving at the Duke Summer Session. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to stretch your capabilities and see how you can apply what you learned over the summer in a competitive situation where your skills are put to the test in a real-world analysis and problem-solving challenge. All Summer Academy and Accelerated STEM Academy participants are eligible for this competition.

 

Submit a research report including a description of a challenge being brought on by our expanding use of internet connected technology and a proposal for a solution to help address that challenge.

To be Announced.
