The fall semester’s final meeting on Dec. 12 had something of a high-stakes feel for members of class 22.033 (Nuclear Science and Engineering Design).
“We’re pretty nervous,” said Jared Wilson, a senior majoring in Course 22. With four classmates and a mockup of a fast fission nuclear reactor, Wilson was awaiting the start of their team’s project presentation. The anxiety-inducing format consisted of a 10-minute pitch before a panel of expert judges; the lucky winners would earn a free trip to Singapore in January for an international hackathon.
The class, packaged as a semester-long design competition, requires students to identify a significant real-world challenge and demonstrate how it could be solved in a commercially viable way through the application of nuclear science and engineering. Guided by class instructor Zachary Hartwig, the John C. Hardwick Assistant Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering, three teams assembled to tackle the formidable assignment.
