We wish you a happy summer! As we approach the end of the school year, we’re excited to share what we’ve been up to with our community. Here are some updates on what’s been happening at Greenway Institute.
The 2022/23 Build a Better World Challenge Announces This Year’s Winners
The 2023 Build a Better World Challenge Demonstration Day took place on May 26 in Windsor, VT. For this year’s challenge, students built solar-powered devices that helped solve a food-related issue. After months of hard work, the student teams showcased their projects to Greenway’s panel of judges, along with industry professionals and the community.
Students were excited to show off their designs, with one student commenting, “We didn’t realize we could make something we are so proud of, in such a short amount of time, with our own hands.”
Sophia Dufour, Makayla Rondeau, Arabella Cowdrey, and Emma Simino of Windsor High School claimed the prize for best engineering design with their solar-powered, cost-effective home compost bin. The judges were impressed by their creative engineering design, comprehensive vision, and iterative design process.
Ivan Renninger, Colton Gaudette, Jacob Reed, and Reghan Allen, also of Windsor High School, claimed the prize for overall prototype performance for their solar-powered agricultural compost machine. Judges praised the team’s innovative idea, technically advanced design, and impressive prototype performance.
Teams were also awarded prizes for best presentation, measurable impact, sustainability of design and materials, and technological innovation. To read more about the event, check out this article in The Herald.
