Five teams worked hard developing their submissions for the second Tech Challenge, whose theme was “Sustainable Design in the Developing World.”
After voting, the winning group was announced: Samantha Davidson, Ken Griffin and Tim Zelazny. They created a desalination plant and rooftop crop for Algeria, which is experiencing its worst drought in five decades.
The contest was developed by ESDi (ESD Innovation), a group dedicated to improving collaboration across the company and promoting a culture that encourages innovation. The 2016 Tech Challenge also drew a number of spirited entries.
