Two undergraduate students from the A. James Clark School of Engineering advised by Assistant Professor Teng Li won 2nd Place in the First Annual University of Maryland Undergraduate Science/Engineering/Technology Video Competition this April. Team leader Edward Dechaumphai (ME) and Jon Chung (Bioengineering) produced a 4-minute video titled, ?Bringing the Future to the Present: Flexible Macroelectronics?.

?I'm especially proud of Ed and Jon for this award because both team members are freshmen,? said Professor Li. Their video demonstrated the potential uses for flexible macroelectronics, such as wrist-held cell phones and and electronic paper, and included some original animation.

Sci/Terp is a competition organized by the Office of University Communications asking undergraduates to make a short video that explains their science, engineering, or technology research to a lay audience. Ellen Ternes of University Communications, w launched the program, states, ?I feel very strongly that we achieved our goals, which were to establish a solid foundation, & see what students would come up with.? Other entrants included videos on fire protection and safety, Photolithography, and Orthopaedic Mechanobiology.

Students were required to produce a short video that could understandable to middle school aged students, demonstrate what they are doing, and why it's exciting or interesting. Winning videos will be shown on the Maryland and ME websites and distributed to school systems in Maryland.
