STUDENT ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Phoebe Evans (’16) designed a life clock that embodies time through the representation of rings on a tree. Evans used Arduino and LED lights to bring life to the clock.

Six students (’15) teamed up with IDEO Chicago to design a low-cost teff seed row planter to improve the livelihood of Ethiopian farmers.

Jeff Kahn (’14) designed the product Zeez which explores how different dosing protocols of light can affect the circadian clock thus improving the quality of life.

“I saw how much room there was to customize the program, to make it what you want. Between the electives, research projects, internships, there was freedom to explore. You can use the MBP program to go wherever you want."
