Take on a Health Challenge and Design the Solution

College of Agriculture and Natural Resources’ students are invited to take part in UD’s First Step Grand Challenges program. First Step is an interdisciplinary/team-based program that brings students from different majors together to take the first step in solving health challenges. Imagine the impact that a team of students with backgrounds in business, policy, engineering, education, natural resources, basic science, the humanities, and environment could have in developing a new device, policy, program, or product to improve health! 

This year, the program kicks off with a Hackathon/Brainstorming Session on Tues., Oct. 11, at the Atrium in the Health Sciences Complex on the STAR Campus (food will be provided). We encourage any interested UD undergrad to participate—even if they aren’t sure what they want to create! There will be numerous opportunities for them to engage with mentors and work together on their solution/idea. Interested students should fill out the First Step interest form.  

The following information sessions are available or students can just plan to attend the Hackathon. 

Wed., Oct. 5 from 9 to 9:30 a.m. via  Zoom

Thu., Oct. 6 from 6 to 6:30 p.m. via Zoom 

The First Step presentations and awards reception is the culmination of a year-long experience where undergraduate, interdisciplinary teams take their “first step” toward solving a health, societal or environmental challenge.
