Engineering Enthusiasm Contest


Back in March, we had our first "Sophomore Engineering Enthusiasm Contest." Contestants were given an hour to solve a really nasty problem. They were only allowed to report answers, and they were graded on the basis of how close they came to the right answers.

Why go through that pain? There was a $1,000 prize for the winner.

It took us a while, but we got around to having an award presentation on April 27. Dr. Kenneth Smith, President of Geneva College, dropped in to make presentations.

Benjamin Roberts came so close to winning the contest that the Engineering Department decided to award him a 2nd prize of $200. Dr. James Gidley, Chair of the Engineering Department, presents the check to Benjamin, with Dr. Smith in the background.
