ENSC 01 2D Seepage Model
Team: Collin Connelley, Christina Languell, Ryan Nguyen
Faculty Advisor: Mark Muszynski email
At the end of this project, we will create a working 2D Seepage Model to be used by Gonzaga University for the SEAS department.
ENSC 05 Hold That Cup of Joe
Team: Breyana George, Ivan Jimenez, Kendall Monson, Payton Rothlin
Faculty Advisor: Noel Bormann email
This project will be using wasted coffee grounds, turned into activated carbon by the process of pyrolysis, to filter water from the Spokane River -- specifically to remove heavy metals from the water to make it more drinkable.
ENSC 11 Personal Desalination Device
Team: Joshua Aspinwall, Sebastian Berven, Mikaella Croskrey, Ross Leung-Wagner, Matthew Moen
Faculty Advisor: Dave Moss email
The project seeks to ensure that communities vulnerable to a changing global climate can still maintain healthy levels of water consumption. Our goal is to create a personal desalination device capable of providing the WHO minimum of 20L of water per day in under two hours, ensuring a widespread capability to produce safe drinking water from seawater.
