Geneva College Engineering

What's new in the Engineering Department?

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 as 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 that we decided to award a second prizeof $200. Dr. Gidley, Chair of the Engineering Department, is giving Benjamin the check, with Dr. Smith in the background.
