Symphonic, consisting of Mechatronics Engineering students Christopher Samra and Avery Chiu, and Arts student Ryan Trainor is one of the 4 teams that has received the $5,000 award. Their pitch of building a wearable interface that enables people with speech liabilities to speak, using the technique of decoding speech from neuromotor intentions, has provided us with a promising future of helping people with disabilities. 

Congratulations to team Symphonic, and all the other award winners! Their stories have been posted in UWaterloo Daily Bulletin.
