Here's another EPIC contest: to design, 3-D print, and develop a business plan for a new or improved medical device.

This competition is for students and the community.

Teams identify a need for a new or improved medical device. They design, print, and develop a business plan over the course of three months. No experience with 3D printing or healthcare required – just some ingenuity and the desire to learn!

Everyone welcome! Registration deadline: October 17th.
