You’re invited!

Join us and support our student teams presenting their innovative solutions for the Rain It In student competition. We are proud to host our inaugural event at Durham College on March 24th, 2020 in the Global Classroom.


Throughout the day you will hear from some of the brightest minds in water innovation. After, there will be a mix and mingle event where students, community members, and industry professionals will have the opportunity to connect.
