ENGINEERING DESIGN CHALLENGE (Win a Nintendo Switch Lite & more!)

We are well aware of some of the negative consequences of current industrial and environmental degradation activities. Thus, as engineers and scientists, it is imperative that we address these problems in our communities with forward-thinking, sustainable solutions.

Identify an environmental problem in your community and develop an engineering prototype. Here are just a few ideas/directions to boost your brainstorming!

Mechanical: Develop a prototype/model on Solidworks for a more cost-effective, efficient water filter.

Material: Pitch a redesign of a current product and the benefits of using a different material.

Chemical: Can berry dye be used to convert light energy into electrical energy for solar panels?

Software: Utilize existing datasets and APIs to develop an interface that rates a building’s energy efficiency.
