SciBridge Wins 2nd Place at MRS Sustainability Competition
April 7th, 2016
An interdisciplinary team of NCSU engineering undergraduate and graduate students won 2nd place (& $300 for their project!) at the Materials Research Society 2016 Spring Meeting "Sustainability in My Community" competition in Phoenix, AZ. Their submission, entitled "Building the SciBridge between Africa and the U.S.," focused on their efforts to improve engineering education in sustainable energy in developing countries in sub-Saharan Africa as well as increasing research collaborations between African and U.S. scientists.
The team consisted of MSE undergrads Mohanad Alsaftawi, Tyler Boquet-Caron, Julian Brodie, Mohammad Omary, and Andrew Squires, MSE grads Shelby Boyd, Alexandria Cruz, and Ruocun (John) Wang, and MAE grads Christopher Boggs, Ismail Mohamed, Megan Watkins, and Santhosh Radhakrishnan.
