Opening Ceremony 

Welcome in advance to the Opening Ceremony!

Our Opening Ceremony is an optional event created for the fun and benefit of competitors, coaches, and parents alike.

For those curious to learn more general information about Cornell University, we’ll feature panels to answer questions about anything from the application process to daily life. We’ll also showcase several Project Teams, which mimic real-world engineering by bringing Cornell students and staff together to solve complex problems in team settings. And if you’re looking to try your hand at trivia, win a scavenger hunt, or just sample different flavors of Cornell Dairy ice cream, we’ve got you covered.
