ESUMS Students Garner 1st Place Award at International Competition

Here is a video of the leaders of the Wastelsss team from ESUMS presenting in Los Angeles at the Paradigm Challenge award ceremony last week.  As part of the trip, they were also interviewed for Amy Poehler's Smart Girls website and Ron Howard’s Genius documentary series.  

 

Here is a formal press release from the event.  While thhe ESUMS team did not win the $100,000 grand prize, they did win a first prize award, and the Paradigm Foundation has offered to help them apply for a patent.  A description of their invention is here.

 

This is all great news and a real achievement for ESUMS.  

 
The team hopes to build a prototype or working model of the device this year.
 
Congratulations to the students, staff and parents who supported this wonderful project.
