Students of the SolarSPELL (Solar Powered Educational Learning Library) initiative are confronting the realities of low-resource contexts with an ultra-portable, ruggedized, education-focused digital library, designed to build internet-ready skills in an offline environment.

The 18th biannual Innovation Showcase was on Friday, December 3, 2021 from 3–5:30 p.m.

The event features a large-scale exhibit of student-produced, industry-sponsored projects, demonstrating how ASU students solve real-world problems using skills obtained during their undergraduate experience.

Collaborating with industry partners both in the greater metropolitan area and across the globe, students have the opportunity to engineer creative solutions to meet tangible industry and societal needs. With the guidance of industry and faculty mentors, the capstone environment enables a think tank for students to conceptualize, develop, produce and refine new methodologies, inventions and ideas.

Thank you for supporting our students!
