On Friday, May 3, from 9 am to 12 pm, the College of Engineering will host the sixth annual Innovation Day at Lawlor Events Center. The showcase is open to students, faculty, staff and the public.

Held in the spring each year, Innovation Day allows for senior engineering undergraduate students from all five departments to showcase their capstone projects that they have been working on during the course of their senior year.

Featuring posters, presentations and demonstrations, more than 100 projects will include:

• Creation of a UV-activated gel nail polish

• A detailed plan to create sustainability improvements and expand the Tahoe Trailways Bike Path System, a 20-mile paved multiuse pathway in Tahoe City, California

• A browser designed to let users browse through a local bookstore's inventory and connect them with others to sell and trade their own books

• A wearable baby monitoring device, which will measure the baby's heart rate, oxygen levels, temperature and movements

• A water leak detection system that can immediately identify leaks and irregular water flow in high traffic water areas

A list of all featured projects can be found on the College's Innovation Day website.
