Interactionary
--------------

Last year GSK won the professional and all-around competitions, and NC
State won the student competition. This year we're trying something a
little different. Mixed teams of students and practitioners will
compete head-to-head in a live design competition.

Simply put, the Interactionary is a live team-based design
competition. Teams are given a design problem and 10-20 minutes to
design a solution to the problem. Teams then present their design to
the audience, and the judges.
