BCFBCF Technology is excited to announce the registration of the University Contest is now open until September 20, 2016. The University Contest is a competition that has been organized by BCF Technology for the last couple of years and is held between September 26 October 7, 2016. If the students sign up before September 16, 2016, they will receive a free BCF Technology shirt.

Universities all over the United States and Canada compete in the University contest to win an Easi-Scan ultrasound kit with a value of just under $14,000. The kit includes an Easi-Scan 4, 3 Batteries, a battery charger, BUG OLED goggles, a waste bag, the Easi-Scan case, and a Remote Display. The equipment will be brand new and ready to be used by the winning University.

This year the University contest will be held over two weeks. The first week groups will be assigned daily tasks which they will receive via email at 8:00am central time the day off the task and are expected to complete it by 11:59pm central time. For the tasks, the groups will have the opportunity to use BCF's Easi-Scan ultrasound machines. In the second week, groups are asked to submit 1-2 minute' videos in which the group should explain why they should win the Easi-Scan. The only rule for the video is to have fun with it!

The University contest has been an exciting event for a lot of students and this year it will be held in the fall instead of the spring.
