Congratulations to Vivaspire founders John Grousopoulos, Mostafa Saquib and Chris Hajduk, as well as their fellow NE Capstone Design project team member Pablo Enrique, for their award-winning concept: a lightweight oxygen therapy delivery device that uses nanotechnology to capture, store and deliver oxygen.
Congratulations to the HeatFlex team, who won the GM Canada People’s Choice Award at the 2017 Nanotechnology Engineering Capstone Design Symposium.
HeatFlex’s Supavannan Jeyabalachandran, Amanda Victorious, Anahita Malvea, Tuba Opel and Mayuran Saravanapavanantham won the award for integrating conductive materials into a polymer matrix to create flexible, heat-generating fabric that can be used to create clothing.
While conventional apparel relies on insulation to keep its wearer warm on a cold day, HeatFlex aims to create clothing that can warm the wearer.
Teams of fourth-year NE students presented the results of their Capstone Design projects at the program’s Design Symposium on March 24, 2017. Capstone Design challenges students to work in teams, applying the skills and knowledge they learned through their undergraduate degree, to conceptualize and design a solution to a real-world problem.
