SPARK Innovation Competition 2019

On October 22-23, 2019, 18 Paulson College of Engineering and Computing students competed in the first-ever SPARK Southeast INNOVATION Competition on the Georgia Southern University Statesboro campus. The 24-hr shark tank-type competition was sponsored by Ramboll, a leading engineering, design and consultancy company founded in Denmark in 1945.  Students were divided into teams and charged with solving a sustainability problem that involved manufacturing, technology and achieving zero-waste-to-landfill operations.

The competition is part of the focus on experiential learning for Paulson College students and helps develop problem solving, collaboration and presentation skills while providing an opportunity to network with industry experts.

The first place winners were: Everrick Wright, Coby Wissing, Maria Isabel Gonzalez Bocanegra,  Emily Bailey, Brennan Drake, and Kelton King.  They received a cash prize and have been invited to present their winning solution at the Fall 2019 College Corporate Advisory Committee meeting.  With special thanks to industry sponsors,  Mr. Samuel Vedder from Grifols and Mr. Mike Hall from Ramboll.
