The Fall 2010 Engineering Design Expo, held Dec. 4 at the Integrated Teaching Learning Laboratory, featured 80 inventions created by CU engineering undergraduate students.
More than 400 students exhibited their creations at the design expo, presenting innovations such as a recycling jukebox that rewards users for discarding recyclable waste with playing of the CU anthem and a rotating shelving unit that enables wheelchair-bound people to access clothing and other items.
Exhibiting their engineering creations in public at the semiannual design expo challenges students to build a functioning project that is creative, impacts the everyday lives of people, capitalizes on students’ imagination through teamwork and hones their presentation skills — all essential to today’s budding engineers.
Congratulations to the People’s Choice Award winner, Team “Lock It Up,” for creation of a retractable bike lock. The students were Matt Feddersen, Alex Fout, Nicholas Reynolds, and Benjamin Sherman. The People’s Choice Award is awarded based on votes cast by the public for their favorite invention.
