2010-2011 Inventors Competition--Winners of the "Gimme Shelter" Competition
Tech Directions, v70 n10 p16-20 May 2011
The number of entries to this year's "Tech Directions" Inventors Competition exceeded even the record set by the 2009-2010 contest--and gave engineer/inventor Harry T. Roman quite a judging challenge. This year's challenge called on students to propose designs for inexpensive, portable shelters that could be used by people made homeless by natural disasters like floods, earthquakes, and storms--a very prescient challenge, it seems, in light of the recent earthquake and resulting tsunami in Japan. This article presents the seven winners of this year's competition, along with descriptions of their proposed designs and the judge's comments.
