Blizzard Baja - Advanced...

Currently, our two enclosed trailers have room for improvements in function and safety. We currently have one older generator that has to be shared between four teams, and this creates a problem when two teams have overlapping events. After several years of normal wear and tear, the non-slip floor...

BoardSport Technologies Enterprise...

While snowboarding in the back-country, avalanches become a potential danger to a snowboard rider. If caught in an avalanche, the rider will be buried and could be lost for hours (leading to the likely possibility of death). Therefore, the SmartBoard will have two different ways to track the...

More Than a Snail's Pace:...

Alaska's Bering Glacier, the largest glacier in North America, has been experiencing extensive ablation, or melt. Since 1900, the terminus—the glacier's endpoint—has retreated more than seven miles. In order to provide data for scientists and policy makers to act on, we must continue to monitor...

Mussel Chemistry Inspired Hydrogel...

Existing man-made machines are mainly composed of hard, metallic components that are unsuitable for handling tissues that are soft and fragile or complex in shape. We seek to incorporate chemistry utilized by marine mussels to develop soft robotic components that can potentially better interface...

Off-the-Shelf Blood Vessels: New...

Coronary artery diseases result in over 500,000 heart bypass grafts each year in the United States, but more than one-fifth of these patients are not candidates for the procedure due to changes in their vascular system or previous use of veins for other procedures. We aim to provide a solution for...
