NSPIRE and Murrow Team to Enter Video Contest

NSPIRE graduate students and Murrow College of Communication undergraduates have collaborated on a video submission to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) Grand Challenges for Engineering Video contest. The NAE contest solicited videos that explain why “achieving one or more of the NAE Grand Challenges will lead to a more sustainable, healthy, secure, and more joyous world.”  This WSU team focused their efforts on the Grand Challenge of managing the nitrogen cycle.  You can view their video submission below, or using this link.  Also, keep in mind that this competition also has a People’s Choice Award- to help this video win, “like” it on YouTube!
