ME senior Aaron Bland's prototype (above), a mountain bike with a rear-wheel shock-absorbing system, took first place and $2,500 in the Tong Prototype Prize. Chemical and Biological Engineering senior Katie Plzak's invention, "Two-Phase Flow Regime Detection System," earned first place and $10,000 in this year's Schoofs Prize for Creativity. Plzak did her research on the system while under the direction of Mechanical Engineering Assistant Professor Tim Shedd.
