Three finalist teams from lycees in the Strasbourg area joined Consul General Amy Westling at the residence on July 1 to share videos of the innovations they presented at the Inno’Cup Jr final competition in Grenoble during July 8-9. Attending with professors and supporters from the University of Strasbourg (Jardin des Sciences), each team demonstrated their innovations, showed videos, answered questions, discussed the genesis of their ideas, and then enjoyed a stand-up buffet. The Alsatian teams’ projects were truly inventive and included a digital device to ensure proper weight placement in physical therapy (EMA), an application that merges and disseminates multiple photos and videos of a single event, and a miniature, mobile string bass plus a modular guitar that can be disassembled (a bass that plays like ukulele).
Alsatian teams became second (ukulele bass) and third (EMA) in national finals in Grenoble last week. Congratulations to both awarded teams!
