Preserving the environment is a passionate subject for many in the Pacific Northwest. That passion helped spark lively discussions about the topic of how to address environmental challenges last night at the 2009 University of Washington Environmental Innovation Challenge (EIC). For this competition, 16 student teams, comprised primarily of engineering and business students, collaborated to develop efficient and sustainable environmental innovations for a chance to win a $10,000 grand prize.
