Congratulations to The Leaf Peepers, winners of the November 2, 2017 Pitch of the Week (POW!) Preliminary Challenge. Team members include Cam Nguyen, a senior Computer Science major, Clarissa Osagie, a junior Biochemistry/Biology double major who minors in Creative Writing, and Nathan Sundquist, a senior Economics major who minors in Business Administration. This week’s randomly drawn prompt was comprised of beer brewing, vacuum molding machine and sticky notes. The Leaf Peepers pitched a system for custom designed vacuum molded beer bottles and kegs, using sticky notes as an easy to learn labeling system for new employees. The Leaf Peepers will advance to the final round of POW! to be held on Thursday, November 30 from noon-1:00 in the UTA FabLab. Each member of the winning team at the final round will receive $50 gift cards.
