Many students from Mines participated including EE graduate Michael Blonsky and undergraduates Christian Amundson, Christopher Burroughs, Ryan Reschak, Linlee Morrison, and Zoe Logan. The team went through 1.5 years in planning and designing, 3 weeks of construction, and 2 weeks of testing and presenting the Inter House to judges in 10 categories: Engineering & Construction, Innovation, Architecture, Market Appeal, Communications & Social Awareness, Home Life & Entertainment, Electrical Energy Balance, Appliances, Sustainability, and Comfort Conditions. Inter House was awarded the highest combined score in all 10 contests. Individual contest results can be viewed on the SDA website.

Thank you to all who participated in Dr. Coulston’s Celebrate Mines event!

Dr. Coulston, Dr. Aaen, and two seniors – Drew Hinkle and Connor Ventura – helped over 30 students solder together “LED flowers,” a Mines designed project that allows a user to make adjustments to the red, green, and blue light output from an LED. Many of the students were learning to solder for the first time.
