Last night, the Cade Museum Foundation hosted it’s 4th annual prize night, honoring creators and innovators in Florida. From the sweet sixteen, down to the final four, Gator Engineering had two teams competing for a $50,000 cash prize and wider recognition. And they both won! The cash award went to NanoPhotanica, a manufacturer of electronic display screens that were developed by Paul Holloway, distinguished professor in UF’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering. Our other team – Green Liquid & Gas, started by Dr. Alex Green, emeritus graduate research professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, won the People’s choice award.
