|Phil Colangelo Presenting|
My personal favorite was the Robotic Feeding Arm developed by Philip Colangelo at UMass Lowell. It's a device that enables people with disabilities to feed themselves more independently.
A social networking theme emerged with three of the presenters:
- Joanna de Pena presented Top Notch Network, a targeted social network that brings together students, social groups, and businesses to create scholarship opportunities for students in need.
- Margot Rutledge presented Career Rings, a web-based platform that brings together college students and recent college graduates in small online workshops with coaches, to develop career building skills for today's job market.
- Nick Zeckets presented QuadWrangle, an app to connect alumni and their colleges more directly to build fundraising and to facilitate career networking.
