Congratulations to BHP juniors Bhargav Srinivasan, Leanna Swain, and Kelley Rytlewski, who won the Spring 2011 Roden Scholars Case Competition. Along with third-year engineering student Naveen Mehta, these BHP students created a business plan and presentation to develop, market, and finance an energy-retaining and energy-generating window using a unique substance known as aerogel, defeating fifteen other teams in the competition. Congrats!
Congratulations to BHP sophomores Michael Koetting and Sid Upadhyay, who recently launched an online study tool called Hoot.me at a recent startup conference. The Facebook application allows tutors and students to engage each other on the popular social media site. Along with computer science major Gaurav Sanghani, Koetting and Upadhyay won first place at the StartupCamp3 Comms Edition competition in Miami for their work. Koetting said the ultimate goal of Hoot.me is “to change the way people think about learning.” Way to go, guys!
