Solve at MIT is the annual flagship Solve event, which takes place on MIT’s campus. The Solver class presents their solutions to Solve Challenges, and participates in workshops with Solve members to develop partnerships to pilot and implement the solutions. The next set of Solve Challenges are also workshopped at this event.
