Student Project Wins Holmescoming Competition

Screen Shot 2013-12-10 at 1.24.13 AM
The IEEE Student Branch is awarded $300 for best student organization booth at November’s Holmescoming Alumni event. With the help of EE undergraduates Jake Tsuyemura and Joshua Rivera, IEEE student branch created an Arduino breathalyzer game. Holmescoming guests enjoyed playing the game as the higher the player’s alcohol levels, the more christmas lights lit up a coconut tree.  IEEE student members spoke with guests about the importance of alcohol awareness and additional projects members participate in, such as Micromouse and Nanosat. Judging was consisted of the criteria: Interactive, Informative, Creativity, and Decor. IEEE Student Branch would like to send a great thank you to all the members who volunteered to help make this event and win possible.
