Impactful Ideation. 💡 Rapid prototyping. 🛠 Real-world teamwork. 🚀 
That’s the NC State Make-A-Thon experience.

Students compete in teams to create the best solution to a sustainability challenge. Whether it’s about water, waste, energy, transportation or food — that’s up to you and your team to decide.

At the end of the competition, you will pitch your idea to judges from the community and local companies. And, yes, there are prizes for the winning teams: $2,000 for first place, $1,000 for second place and $500 for third place.

When Allison Nagy (@alli0603), a sophomore studying mechanical engineering at @ncstateengr, first heard about the October Design Challenge she instantly had an idea. 

Knowing that women’s clothing pockets have been a real problem for a long time, she knew exactly what she needed to do in order to create a solution. This is how the Simple Pocket was created.

Armadillos keep digging little holes in my backyard... 🕳️

Want to know how what an armadillo, a Mandarin duck 🦆, an eagle 🦅and a dolphin 🐬have to do with leadership? 

The @ncstatepoole podcast sat down with Chuck Saia and Leigh Shamblin to talk all things leadership including: what skills do the leaders of tomorrow need? How do we teach those skills in the classroom? How has the pandemic changed leadership styles?

Back in 2016, Andy Albright (@andysalbright) and his wife, Jane, made an investment in entrepreneurship at @ncstate with a generous $5 million dollar donation that allowed us to build the Albright Entrepreneurs Village on Centennial Campus. 

As an NC State alum, from @ncstatewilson, Andy wanted to give students the opportunity to make a big change in the world. 

Five years later, the Albright Entrepreneurs Village is booming with fun activities and lots of traditions it is the place to live on campus. You can apply now to live in the AEV next year with the link in our bio.

#AlbrightVillage
"When I committed to my study abroad semester in the US, I had no idea what to expect. I didn't know what the Albright Entrepreneurs Village was or how big the entrepreneurial community at NC State would be. Coming here from one of the smallest countries in Europe, everything was on a new scale. It was all the more surprising how welcoming the whole community was.

In the few weeks I was able to spend here at NC State, I met so many people from all over the world. Every single person I spoke to had a different background and different goals and ambitions in life. Everyone was open to sharing their story and helping each other along the way. The support you get in this community is just incredible."
