FPE students won 3rd Place in Sci/Terps video contest

This spring, undergraduate students at the University of Maryland entered the first Sci/Terp competition. They made videos that show what they research and study in their science, engineering and technology classes at Maryland. Winners were chosen by a panel of judges that included science journalists, a staff member of Kids Post, an Emmy-winning script writer for Discovery Channel and ninth grade science classes at Montgomery Blair High School.

"Team Burnination", one of the teams in Maryland's Gemstone program, and a team that included 2 FPE Undergraduate students, Evan Patronik and Chris Moran, won 3rd Place in the Sci/Terp competition with a video called "Examining Fire Safety of On-Campus Housing" or "Your Room is a Mess!" The video discusses how a typical dorm room may prove to be a fire hazard and ways to make the room safer.
