The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) has selected the student chapter at UW-Madison for a 2005 STRETCH (STudents Reaching Excellence Through CHapters) Award for outstanding achievement. This award, worth $2,500, will be used for facility tours and to fund trips to conferences.

In the latest UW-Madison G. Steven Burrill Technology Business Plan Competition, second place and $7,000 went to FireSite — a team whose business plan centered on a system that helps firefighters find their way out of burning buildings.

The FireSite team includes mechanical engineering senior Chandler Nault, finance sophomore Brian Burke, industrial engineering sophomore Mitch Nick, and chemical and biological engineering and theater sophomore Nick O'Brien. The team also recently took first prize and $10,000 in the Schoofs Prize for Creativity competition.
