If you’ve wondered what the Sandbox is, now is the perfect time to find out. Inspire your inner changemaker at two upcoming events.
Sandbox Challenge Pitch Competition
Waaaaaay back in January, the Sandbox launched a call for student projects to participate in the Wellness Challenge. For the past two months, the teams who answered the call have been busy developing and planning change on campus. These inspirational teams of three or more students are now preparing to pitch their projects and vie for funding to move into action and impact! A panel of judges will decide on the ultimate winner, but the audience can vote for their favourites too.
The teams pitching are #artanyway, ChemClout, Sapone, Pedal Power, and Sustainable Urban Café.
Come to the Sandbox Challenge Pitch Competition on Wednesday, April 11th in P-204 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM. Everyone is welcome!
