IDEATE Nonprofits

What is my nonprofit’s role in IDEATE?

The SourceAmerica® IDEATE Engineering Competition thrives on the collaboration between student teams and people with disabilities working in the nonprofit community.

As a source of insight and perspective, your nonprofit can play an important role in the success of the competition in a number of ways:

  • Generating project ideas and inspiring creativity
  • Connecting student teams with people with disabilities in the community who will serve as subject matter experts (SMEs)
  • Guiding the selection, testing, and implementation of a project

The stronger the connection between you and the competition team member, the more successful the project.
