Previous Proposals

Big ideas, STEM principles and enthusiasm.

Since the competition debuted in 2011, we’ve seen 1,500-plus entries stuffed with big ideas, STEM principles and a healthy dose of student-driven enthusiasm. We’ve included a few below for your reference. Please remember — the competition rubric changes from year to year, so what you see in these proposals may not necessarily match the requirements of this year’s competition.



“After the last Battle of the Brains, our pre-engineering program saw a significant growth in student enrollment. We have been using aspects from the original program and continue to see interest.”
