The CCIC is led by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) in partnership with the National Science Foundation (NSF). It is a national competition where community college student teams, working with a faculty or administrator mentor, use science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to innovate solutions to real-world problems; participate in an Innovation Boot Camp; and compete for cash awards.

The Boot Camp provides professional development, mentoring, and coaching designed to build strategic communication and entrepreneurial skills to help students advance their innovations in both the private and public sectors. The event culminates in a poster session and engagement opportunity with STEM leaders and Congressional stakeholders, and a pitch presentation in front of a panel of industry and entrepreneurial professionals to determine the first, second, and third place winning teams.

This virtual institute is intended for STEM, high school, and community college educators. During the institute, participants will learn how solar photovoltaic power works, investigate career opportunities for students, explore CREATE's collection of ready-made solar classroom lessons, and develop a lesson plan to implement in the classroom. Five to six hours will be spent online with virtual instruction and five to six hours working offline with CREATE lessons and solar lab equipment.
