RocketJudge
RocketJudge is a platform designed to streamline competitions—the platform works with more than 500 different competitions a year around the world to provide electronic scoring for professional conferences, university poster sessions, invention conventions, science fairs and more.

Who will use RocketJudge: Enterprise and Senior Design team videos will be asynchronously scored by judges over the course of four (4) days, April 12 – April 15, leading up to the Virtual Design Expo, April 15, 2021. Prior to the start of Virtual Design Expo, judges will have the opportunity to review team video presentations and assign a score.

Zoom
Who will use Zoom: The Michigan Tech community, friends, family, and corporate sponsors are invited to tune into Zoom for the Design Expo Opening Remarks to officially kick-off the event. More information to come.
Registration for Zoom is coming soon.

Gatherly
Gatherly is a platform designed for spatial video chat. The platform lets users move around and talk freely to others at the event. As soon as you move close to someone on the map, you automatically start video-chatting with them. Move into an open group, and you’ll join their conversation seamlessly.

Who will use Gatherly: The Michigan Tech community, friends, family, and project sponsors are invited to tune into Gatherly for a 2-hour event where teams and audience members have the chance to engage in conversations over project work, discoveries, and everything in between. Registration for Gatherly is coming soon.
