Earth Day Celebration

This Saturday, our team had the amazing opportunity to showcase our wave generator at a local Earth Day Celebration hosted at the PPL Center. Not only did many interested celebration goers watch our live presentations and listen to our explanations, but we also received official recognition from various people and organizations in celebration of our accomplishments. Saturday, April 26, 2014 was officially declared Wallenpaupack Inventeam Day!

Working Towards Wayne-Pike County Earth Day Celebration

Happy Earth Day all! This Saturday is the Wayne-Pike County Earth Day Celebration, at which we will be showing off our device. This week, the whole team is working diligently to complete all of the elements of the invention process we would like to display this weekend. The technical team is hard at work fine-tuning the device, all the while the financial team is putting together some calculations from over the past year and the communications team is creating a display presentable to the public. Links for more information on the Earth Day Celebration are available in a previous posting. Hope to see you there!

Pool Test is a Success!

Hello everyone, long time no talk! While you have all been enjoying your spring breaks, the Wallenpaupack InvenTeam has been hard at work in an effort to make our wave generator the very best it can be. Thanks to great ideas on our part and some great suggestions from other teams and mentors, the device has come a long way since the past summer. With a revamped design, we decided to test our latest prototype in a local community pool on Thursday while Mother Nature worked to melt the last of the ice on Lake Wallenpaupack. A video will be posted soon, so please check back later for that!
