Sheridan College INBRE-Supported Team Selected as Finalist for NSF Community College Innovation Challenge

March 25, 2015

The Sheridan College Innovation Team sponsored in part by Wyoming INBRE has been selected by an expert panel of judges as one of ten finalist innovations. As a finalist the team, led by Dr. Sadanand Dhekney and Dan Bergey with the University of Wyoming Agriculture Experiment Station and Rob Milne with Sheridan College, will attend a Community College Innovation Challenge Boot Camp June 15-18, 2015 at the National Science Foundation (NSF) in Arlington, VA. The Camp is designed to provide a hands-on learning opportunity for the ten finalist teams to further develop their ideas through workshops and technical assistance focused on building innovation, entrepreneurship, and strategic communication skills. The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) is hosting the event in partnership with NSF. The Community College Innovation Challenge Boot Camp will feature an opportunity for the finalist teams to display their challenge projects as part of a reception to be held on Capitol Hill in the Rayburn House Office building on Wednesday, June 17. Congressional members and key congressional staff will be invited to meet with the innovation challenge teams to learn about their ideas and proposed solutions. NSF will distribute $500 to each team to assist with developing their displays, models, and/or prototypes for this event. Team members (hometown) include Hannah Shafer (Rapid City), Hannah Jernigan (Cheyenne), Paige Jernigan (Cheyenne), and Ceirra Carlson (Greybull).
