Quick-Start Guide

Thanks for joining the Connect Ability Challenge. You're officially registered now and we’ll be sending you regular updates throughout the challenge.

Here’s how to get started on project today. Submissions are due June 24, 2015 at 5pm ET.

  1. Meet the Exemplars, Paul, Xian, Jason, and Gus, to learn about who they are, the struggles they face, and their hopes for how technology could improve their lives.
  2. Plan your attack. Visit the Resources and Technical Briefs pages to learn more about submission categories and problem areas your solutions can address.
  3. Get a head start on your submission. Fill out the basics of your submission and save it as a draft today. This will give you a good idea of what you'll need to put together before the deadline.
  4. Optional: Form a team. Thinking about buddying up? Visit the Participants page to find and meet teammates.

We can't wait to see what you'll create. Good luck!
