I2P Showcase





Come see how Georgia Tech students have turned their invention ideas into working prototypes!

What is the I2P Showcase?

Idea to Prototype (I2P) is a signature element of CREATE-X MAKE. In I2P, students get faculty mentors, guidance, seed funding, and additional university resources to build functional prototypes of their ideas. Students earn three undergraduate research credit hours for each semester they enroll in the course (up to six maximum). 

The Idea 2 Prototype Showcase is the cumulative event for I2P.  At the end of the semester, student teams present their prototypes to the public. A prize will be awarded for first, second and third place as well. This event is an opportunity for students to receive feedback on products that might go on to become a successful startup venture.
