Students’ Engineering Creativity on Display at SSU

May 4, 2016

  Sonoma State is primarily a teaching campus, but many students also engage in research projects, including some innovative inventions, that were on display yesterday in the University's newly combined “Symposium of Research and Creativity."

 The possible applications of a mobile solar-powered generator are almost limitless, says co-developer Jarrett Baglietto, especially since their designed their unit with enough storage to drive even some big, power-hungry equipment.

  Topographic Interactive Model (TIM)  project partners Betsy Smith and Julia Freeman both envisioned their interactive geology-modeling sandbox as a hands-on teaching tool.
