Student Team Wins 2nd Prize in Collegiate Inventors Competition


The Collegiate Inventors Competition announced this week that Thayer School of Engineering students Devon Anderson, Jonathan Guerrette, and Nathan Niparko were the second-place, $5,000 prize winners in the undergraduate category for their creation of an absorbent, bioresorbable surgical sponge.

“They earned a second place finish out of a large number of entries from over two hundred universities in the US,” says Doug Van Citters, assistant professor of engineering at Dartmouth and one of the team’s faculty advisors. “I’m quite proud of the team, and this is a testament to the systems-based, out-of-the-box problem solving technique we teach at Thayer School.”
