A team of Global Business and Digital Arts students developed Virtuous Waste, an alternative to plastic packaging made of seaweed that they pitched before a panel of industry experts and social entrepreneurs on June 19 in Toronto. Their winning solution will receive $25,000 in funding for implementation during a 12-month incubation period.
Global Business and Digital Arts student Victoria Vandenberg achieved 2nd place at the annual Communitech Code/Design to Win challenge held in Kitchener this past weekend.
Vandenberg and 5 other students from the Stratford School of Interaction Design and Business were among the top 25 finalists selected from 258 designers that participated in the preliminary on-campus challenges.
