MIS seniors presented final projects at the Fall 2017 Capstone Project Showcase. The showcase featured ten teams of seniors who presented projects on everything from automated grocery store checkout to a better way to find events in the area.
The winning team, which was selected by a panel of industry experts and Temple faculty, designed a platform for engineers to procure and track equipment for universities and makerspaces. The platform uses digital forms and cloud technology to procure lab equipment transparently. Mentored by Chris Cera, CEO of Arcweb Technologies, the Sandbox team of Shawn Niederriter, Ed Lahm, Zach Trona, and Ken Fong received a $500 prize.
