Nepris brings professionals and experts into classrooms virtually via interactive online sessions hosted at Nepris.com. In November, teachers can sign up for a series on product innovation hosted by OtterBox. Students can talk with engineers and marketing professionals from OtterBox on the product lifecycle and how to bring new products to market. Sessions are open to live student questions and interaction with the presenters.
Each session will also include information about the OtterBox uniVERSE Student Challenge, which is a contest open to students in grades 7-12, aged 13-18. Students are asked to invent a new module idea for the uniVERSE Case System for a chance to win a new iPhone, VIP trip to OtterBox in Fort Collins, CO, and 3 winning student's schools will receive grant funding towards an Innovation station.
