The University of Delaware's Assistive Medical Technologies Club is working to provide special devices from ride-on cars to walkers to children with mobility limitations.

Keeping students on track

University of Delaware advisers and faculty are now armed with a powerful new system, called the Blue Hen Success Collaborative, to help them quickly identify students who are struggling and help them stay on track to graduation.

“Perfect Pitch” calls for students to think of an original business idea and create a video that best describes that business concept to its target audience of investors, potential partners or future customers.

Effectiveness of the “Perfect Pitch” will hinge on the perceived value of the product or service being pitched, the vision of its creators and the tone of the pitch.

The Horn Program encourages students to work collaboratively and use creative elements (for example, music, props and visual aids) to support the core message of the pitch.

Entries are due on or before Wednesday, April 17, to via the University’s Dropbox Service. Each single entrant or group may submit only one video, which must be no longer than 90 seconds in length.

Live judging and an awards ceremony will be held Friday, April 26, from 4-6 p.m. in the atrium of Alfred Lerner Hall on UD’s Newark campus.

For more information on this and other events, contact the Horn Program at or visit the Venture Development Center on 196 South College Avenue.
