We are one of 102 teams who qualified for Round Two, and one of seven selected from the 30 North America teams who qualified.
Our team will be focusing on energy, one of the seven idea categories of the competition. For the Round Two submission, we will be building a prototype that harvests water from atmospheric moisture in order to provide a replenishable hydrogen source for fuel cell systems on aircrafts.
