CPSC 05 KennelNow

team

Team: Ellis Fischer, Nicole Howard, Samantha Vowles, Emma Woodburn
Faculty Advisor: Nadra Guizani email
Sponsor: CEDE

In place of participating in the current time-consuming system of Men’s Basketball ticket distribution, Gonzaga University students will use the mobile web application KennelNow to easily request, accept or deny, cancel, or view tickets to upcoming Men’s Basketball games. Tickets will be distributed to students using a tentative lottery point system.

CPSC 06 Fresh All

team

Team: Quinlan Bingham, Kevin Bruce, Bennett Falkenberg, Amy Larson, Angela Rae
Faculty Advisor: Nadra Guizani email
Sponsor: Fresh All

We are developing a new integrated system to better link suppliers, distributors, packhouses, and input suppliers to reduce the price of food products in rural Eastern Africa, Mozambique. On the ground we are training local farmers in improved farming techniques, coordinating with a packhouse, and hoping to have a phone application developed to further link customers to clients thereby reducing the number of middlemen, increasing smallholder farmer incomes, and combating malnutrition by making food products more affordable.

CPSC 07 Tools for Learning Biochemistry

team

Team: Stephen Joyce, Kayla Larson, Makayla Moniz, Garett Palm
Faculty Advisor: Rob Bryant email
Sponsor: Dr. Jeff Watson, GU Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry

The goal of the project is to develop an interactive, graphically-rich app to help students understand the structure, organization and regulation of metabolic pathways in biochemistry.

CPSC 08 Comsem

team

Team: Dominic Gianatassio, Trevor Greenside, Chin Huynh, Daniel Richard, James (John) Ronderos
Faculty Advisor: Rob Bryant email
Sponsor: Dr. James Hunter, GU Director of TESOL Programs

Faculty Advisor: Shawn Bowers email
Sponsor: Schweitzer Engineering Labs, Inc.

Configurable System Monitoring Engine for dynamically accessing a wide range of computer system data and providing that data to a wide range of standard off-the-shelf analytic visualization tools.

ENSC 02 Bike Safety Smart Sensor

team

Team: Robert Brajcich, Damon George, Arthur Lane
Faculty Advisor: Tim Ecklund email
Sponsor: CEDE

Biker and car safety will increase as compact circuit boards attached to bicycles will collect and transmit location, speed, and direction data to nearby cars and infrastructure.

ENSC 03 Driving Optimization for Autonomous Vehicles

team

Team: Samuel Atkinson, Blake Casagranda, Victoria Sample, Cheyenne Stefan, Brady Whetsel
Faculty Advisor: Debra Offill email
