Help UC San Diego team win the Cornell Cup
A team of UC San Diego students is a finalist in the Cornell Cup, a prestigious engineering competition, and now you can help support them! Each team writes a blog for the competition and the public has now been invited to vote on the blogs.
You can support the UC San Diego team by voting here. The first round of voting ends Feb. 14, with a second round running Feb. 15 to April 2. So vote early and vote often!
Team FANGS is building a ground vehicle that will serve as an observation platform to capture unique, close-quarters footage of wolves at night. The team, which started off as an Engineers for Exploration project here on campus, works closely with the California Wolf Center, located in Julian, east of San Diego.
The Cornell Cup USA, sponsored by Intel, is a college-level design competition created to challenge student teams to use the newest innovative applications of embedded technology in creative ways.
All finalists will converge on the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida in May to win up to $10,000.
