Penn’s Hidden Gem of Student Innovation

PHILADELPHIA, PA – October 27, 2019 – Innovation is spurred by creative problem solving, unique approaches and visualizing the long term objectives and goals. Innovation is at the core of Penn, inspiring engineers, entrepreneurs, scientists, creatives, collaborators, and researchers to push boundaries, reject norms, and answer the challenges of tomorrow. The same desire to develop is what attracts some of the brightest young minds from across the world. Penn provides students with the support to freely explore and test the boundaries of innovation. No other event captures that drive and passion like the Rothberg Catalyzer at Penn.
