Poster Award Winners
1st Place ($100):
The Claaaaaaw!: A Neuroprosthetic Teaching Aid
Adam B. Furore, Eric D. McLeish, Hobey Tam (Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology)
A teaching device to be implemented in a neuroprosthetics course was designed and fabricated to condition electrical impulses from the user's innate nervous system to control a claw machine that has freedom of motion in the 3 principle axes of motion and a claw to enable manipulation of objects.
2nd Place ($75):
Supersonic Nozzle Design
Nathan Shumway, Dr. Fredrick Haan (Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology)
This project's goal was to design and create a converging-diverging nozzle and Schlieren system that could work with a small compressor. After testing the compressor and two different nozzles the system produced clear images of oblique shocks.
3rd Place ($50):
United Electrical Engineering and Design Engineering Technology Packaging Project
Nick Cocanower, Daniel Grabill (Trine University)
Combining two different engineering
fields, students were forced to experience a real life career situation. The
class was assigned and successful in communicating, resulting in quality
packaging for Electrical Engineering printed circuit boards in a Design for
