How does an internship at a GE Global Research Center and a scholarship of up to $100,000 sound to you?
With GE’s Unimpossible Missions: University Edition global challenge, now’s your chance to push the boundaries of human knowledge. To rewrite the rule book. To make the impossible possible, with the help of science.
You see, every day, GE does things that supposedly can’t be done. By taking the smartest minds and giving them access to the most cutting-edge technology available, we’re solving the world’s toughest problems.
The basis behind the challenge is GE’s Unimpossible Missions video series, in which GE engineers employ our knowledge of science, technology and innovation to debunk common sayings (Catching Lightning in a Bottle, Like Talking to a Wall, A Snowball’s Chance in Hell).
Now it’s your turn to show us what you can do! Here’s how to start innovating:
Register at NineSigma (invent.ge/UnimpossibleMissions). Select an idiom based on the guidelines given. Provide a solution to debunk that idiom using a GE Technology Toolkit that outlines the tech and resources we have available.
Each of the three selected winners will receive a 10-week paid internship at any GE Global Research Center in 2017, while the grand prize winner will also win a scholarship of up to $100,000 and have their winning experiment filmed as one of the next Unimpossible Missions!
Participants must be over the age of 18, be attending an accredited university or college and must not have graduated before 31 December 2017. All entries must be submitted before 14 June 2016, 5pm Eastern Daylight Time, and the winners will be announced on 20 July 2016.
