CPSC04 Neural Net Face Recognition

Team: Brian Mackessy, Elijah Michaelson, Anton Sebastian Vargas
Faculty Advisor: Nadra Guizani email
Sponsor: CEDE
Neural Networks are software models that identify human facial-emotional features. Neural Network Facial Recognition team is testing different types of neural networks to find which will classify human facial-emotional features most accurately. The team will build a neural network, assemble a training dataset, and produce a software package that can identify human facial-emotional features.

ENSC04 N. Idaho Collaborative Ed.

Team: Michael Doquilo, Joseph Jesse, Victoria Vivinetto
Faculty Advisor: Aaron Zwanzig email
Sponsor: Eclipse Engineering; Sponsor Liason: Aaron Zwanzig
Students provide schematic structural design, including framing plans and calculations, for the design of the North Idaho Collaborative Education facility at North Idaho College.

ENSC07 Hold That Tray!

Team: Elizabeth Brown, Sarah Godbehere, Meghan Lowry, James Sulser
Faculty Advisor: Alex Maxwell email
Sponsor: Wasington State DOE; Sponsor Liason: John Cleary
Studies show that about a third of all food produced worldwide gets lost or wasted in food production and consumption systems. The goal of the “Hold That Tray” project is to design and build a holistic campus food diversion/recycling program and pilot the program at Gonzaga University over the course of the academic year 2017-18.

ENSC08 Natural Fiber Enhanced Concrete

Team: Loren Colpo, Madison Jurewicz, Zackary Schroder
Faculty Advisor: Lauren Heine email
Sponsor: NW Green Chemistry; Sponsor Liason: Lauren Heine, Jason Puracal
This team hopes to evaluate the supply, and test the physical and mechanical properties of hop fiber waste alone, and as a composite in concrete. Their hope is that by the end of the year, they will have the ability to recommend potential uses and applications of hop concrete composites.

ENSC15 Protective Schemes Lab

Team: Katherine Gibbs, George Herner, Rylie Van Court
Faculty Advisor: Kevin Damron email
Sponsor: Avista; Sponsor Liason: Elizabeth Andrews
The goal of the Protective Schemes lab is to design and implement a tripping and blocking scheme, digital lockout relay, and a bus differential using protective relays in the Gonzaga University Protection lab and IEC 61850 protocol. The overall goal is to develop the protection schemes and necessary documentation.

ENSC21 Clip Installation Tool

Team: Kyle Bowman, Todd Guse, Samuel Kendree, Patrick Tjandra
Faculty Advisor: Ryan Leahy email
Sponsor: Boeing; Sponsor Liason: Gary Weber
Clip Installation Tool team members are developing, designing, and testing a hand held tool for ergonomically installing nut clips in an airplane. The final product must have ergonomic design and use, be durable, easy to use and fill.

ENSC23 Electro-Mechanical Faucet

Team: Ryan Hungate, Charles Mielke, Megan Millward, Samuel Olson
Faculty Advisor: Bob Reed email
Sponsor: Ryan Kellog; Sponsor Liason: Ryan Kellog
Electro-Mechanical Faucet team is developing a low cost and simple to operate electro-mechanical system that can control a conventional faucet. The fundamental functions of this system will be active temperature and throttle control, and pre-heat function.

ENSC24 Concrete Delivery ID

Team: Bianca Burton, Christopher Clark, Nicholas Reasoner, Hans VanderWel, Jack Zielinski
Faculty Advisor: Mason VanLith email
Sponsor: ACME; Sponsor Liason: Robert Seghetti
Concrete has been delivered to millions of locations using paper tickets. Once the concrete is delivered, there is no way to determine the exact location. For quality control purposes, it is important to know the location of the tested material. The goal of the project is to develop a cloud based data system that could become the complete quality control record for the concrete project.

ENSC39 Flaring Crack Protection

Team: Sarah Abercrombie, Paul Joseph Bickel, Kylie Muntean, Erin Weinbender
Faculty Advisor: Anthony Schoen email
Sponsor: CEDE
This team's project is to create a piece of protective gear for outdoor rock climbers. A flaring crack is a rock formation which is wider at the surface and narrows deeper into the rock. Climbers will place the device inside flaring cracks to help protect them if they were to fall while climbing.
