Congratulations to the Renaissance Foundry Research Group (RFRG) for receiving a VentureWell faculty grant, “BioFoundry Design: Leveraging Biomimicry to Advance Environmental and Social Sustainability Innovation in Prototypes Developed in Foundry-Guided Undergraduate Chemical Engineering Courses” (Dr. P. Arce, PI with Co-PIs: Drs. A. Arce-Trigatti, S. Jorgensen, and J.R. Sanders), which will positively impact rural areas. Through the Renaissance Foundry Model (RFM), focused on the development of the “holistic-style” engineering professional, students will adopt and adapt elements of Biomimicry to develop prototypes of innovative technology that are friendlier to the environment. Dr. Arce states, “this is a wonderful recognition for the collaborative RFRG efforts in implementing, assessing, and scaling the RFM as an effective platform to develop holistic-style engineers.” View the story here: https://www.tntech.edu/grand-challenge/news/articles/20200826-venturewell-grantspotlight.php
