Student Summit

At our Bismarck Acceleration Center, you will join a team and be challenged to solve an innovation question. For example, what’s a product you would propose that we can enter the market within the next three years? Once the challenge is completed and ideas pitched to the crowd, winners are voted on by a panel of directors/managers from Bobcat. Teams can be recognized for being the crowd favorite, most unique and best overall and will win prizes. You’ll also be given a tour of our state-of-the-art Research and Development Center, which includes a full lab with a sound chamber and indoor digging area.
