Teacher Tank!

Got an awesome edtech project you're working on? Are you looking for input from educators on an idea for a project? Apply to pitch your product/project to a panel of educators who will give you real, honest feedback on your product/project's strengths and weaknesses from someone who would actually be using it in the classroom.

Products/projects do not have to be completed or released to the public yet.

Applications to present are closed at this time.


Teacher Tank Update:

We'll have 7 teams with fantastic EdTech Concepts - going head to head with 4 "Sharks" - local educators who know their stuff and will give valuable feedback and pick a winner!  Teams will be judged based on concept, classroom application, learning impact, and interface -

    Congratulations to all the startups, each idea is equally impressive and it was hard to choose one over the other. Special thanks to Mary Beth and Donna, for organizing such a great meetup. I have a suggestion, can we have one more category - 'audience pick' (you get to vote only if you are not part of the presenter's startups).

      Sure thing. I'll see you then. Are you thinking it might be possible to submit a proposal through the EdTech Group?
