Koch Innovation Challenge
Congratulations to Wichita State Sport Management freshmen Natalie Dutton, Hayden Schrag and Derek Slaymaker who were among the winning teams of the first Koch Innovation Challenge! The annual competition, held Saturday, Dec. 3, supports the College of Engineering in fostering a culture of creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship and teamwork among students. The projects students worked on include:
The “Stim Support” - A small box that children with ADHD or autism can play with to help them focus.
“Out Cold” - a customizable pillow with air chambers that helps reduce sleep discomfort.
“d-Safe” - An electronic box with a breathalyzer that will return car keys only if someone is below the legal limit for blood-alcohol levels.
“Picture This!” - a magnetic Polaroid-like photography prop.
“Snail-shell Camper” - An ultra-lightweight camping shell that hooks onto a bicycle.
Great Job to all of the participates and always making us Shocker Proud!
