Virtual conference


A two-day virtual designathon filled with awesome speakers, workshops, and a design challenge to explore how design and innovation interact. Ideate aims to observe how design thinking can be applied across fields, and is open to design aficionados, curious newcomers, and everyone in between!

Open to all university students throughout the world.



More than ever before, techology today is in a prime position to improve the quality, efficiency, and accessibility of health care. How can we design applications and technologies to support frontline workers, aid populations at higher risk, and address the health concerns that have emerged throughout this pandemic?


Transitioning to online learning hasn't been easy. How can we design solutions to help those struggling with learning in difficult home environments, create tools for classes transitioning to online formats, and replicate the learning experience at home?


While technology has the potential to reduce social disparities, it has more frequently further exemplified them. Facial recognition, surveillance, and other technologies disproportionately profile and incarcerate Black people. How can we design technology that supports and uplifts marginalized communities and remove the technology that harms them?
