The first day of Imagine Cups has ended, and it was a whirlwind of nerves, drama and demos.
Wednesday morning, the 35 Imagine Cup World Finals teams made last-minute tweaks to their demos, paced the hallways practicing their speeches and reminded themselves why they were at Imagine Cup. For the Vanguards team, it’s about helping their friend manage an anxiety disorder. The team designed a horror-themed video game that helps players learn how to calm themselves down, even during an intense situation.
