Inspiration can come from a variety of places. Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (ABE) students Alena Whitaker, a senior in Biological Systems Engineering (BSE), Mike Sserunjogi, graduate student in ABE, and Garrett Onstot, a Uganda service learner, participated the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) one-minute video challenge.
STEM robotics competitions are a motivator to pursue engineering for many students. But for underrepresented students, including females, the economically underprivileged and people of color, this engineering gateway isn’t always accessible.
