We are excited to announce that we have selected the three teams that will be advancing to the build phase of the competition! Each team submitted a detailed proposal outlining the details of their design including proof of need, expected efficiency, cost, and a construction timeline for their device. The three teams we selected and their corresponding projects are:
Team RAJ: A Peltier Thermoelectric Generator for Recreational Use
Team Gurlz: A Wind and Solar-powered Patio Umbrella
The Dream Team: Solar-powered Hydroponics
Each team will receive $300 to build a prototype of their design. They will have until May 1st to complete their builds where they will then present their designs to a panel of faculty and corporate judges. Judging criteria includes: efficiency, applicability, innovation, and creativity. We are very excited to see the results and we will provide more updates as the build phase progresses!
