MONTCLAIR, NJ – Google recently teamed up with local web developers to launch a campaign called 'Solve for X'. As part of the first qualifying event for North Jersey, the Google Developer’s Group (GDG) is participating in a global initiative to attract the best and the brightest in science and technology. The goal is for local inventors who are working on ways to solve some of the world’s problems to gain national exposure through the Google brand.

The first of the series of events across the tri-state area takes place at Montclair State University on December 11 at 6pm.

Participants are asked to submit ‘moonshots’, which are ideas that would, if executed, be able to solve some of the world’s problems.
