NextFlex, Jabil, and San Jose City College present FlexFactor™ Finals: Silicon Valley, a first-of-its-kind event that will feature the top student teams participating in Fall semester FlexFactor™ programs, representing 13 classes from six schools across Silicon Valley. The celebration begins with a VIP Reception, followed by general admission at 5:30 PM. Student final pitches, awards, special recognition, and announcements will round out the program.
FlexFactor™, NextFlex’s project-based learning program, launched in the fall of 2016 with eight students completing the first iteration at Lincoln High School in San Jose and now has signed on over 1800 students for the 2017-18 academic school year. FlexFactor™ combines skill-building in entrepreneurship, product development, and flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) technology. Student teams are challenged to solve a real-world human health problem and develop a business model for an FHE-enabled solution, and “pitch” it to a panel of industry experts. What began as a white-board exercise has blossomed into a vibrant and growing part of NextFlex as FlexFactor™ is now poised to grow throughout the state of California and across the country.
Plan to join in the celebration–where incredible student-led entrepreneurialism will be on full display, and let us express our gratitude for your support and collaboration as we inspire and enable the next generation workforce for advanced manufacturing in the US.
