The all-virtual 2020 Alaska Airlines Environmental Innovation Challenge, hosted by the UW Foster School’s Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship, brought together nearly 200 student teams and judges. Winning ideas include a water treatment solution that destroys toxic water, a sustainable oxygen concentrator used in areas affected by natural disasters, a water quality monitoring system that protects human and wildlife health, and more.
EarthLab is a proud sponsor of this challenge that brings together interdisciplinary student teams to identify an environmental problem and develop a solution. Teams must design and build a prototype as well as create a business plan that highlights the market potential for their solution.
