Thursday, November 29th was the Fall Senior Design Poster Session and Student Forum. There were 11 senior design groups that presented their innovative ideas to a panel of 4 judges from industry. Eight student groups were highlighted this year, and they got a chance to explain what their group was all about and encourage people to join. It was a day of reviewing senior design posters, getting to introduce EECS Student Groups, having a free lunch while being briefed on EECS, and winning free stuff.
So, without hesitation, the winners are........

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Student Group at EECS is hosting its First Annual Hackathon on Saturday, December 1st at 11 am in ETRL 101. A hackathon would be defined as an event, in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming. Sounds like just the thing to draw computer geeks from far and wide. Everyone is welcome to free food and a free t-shirt but sign up is required. Here are the specifics:

Huge computer data warehouses, many located along the Columbia River, churn through terabytes of data daily for companies, using large amounts of the relatively cheap energy from Northwest hydropower.
