MSE Wins Big at 2018 InVenture Prize
MSE student Kolby Hanley won Georgia Tech’s InVenture Prize Wednesday night for his invention, a first-of-its-kind aiming device for competitive archery. He won $20,000 plus a free patent filing and a spot in Flashpoint, a Georgia Tech accelerator. Hanley, transferred to Tech last year. His lightweight scope with integrated light, called StarLight, is the latest product developed by his company, UltraView. He runs the company from his dorm room.
The People’s Choice Award and $5,000 went to pHAM. These students designed a filter to reduce coffee’s acidity. They incorporated a mineral blend into the structure of the filter paper, which reduces the acidity of the brewed coffee without negatively affecting the taste. Four materials science and engineering majors – Michele Lauto, Tyler Quill, Aaron Stansell and Lucas Votaw – invented this product.
