Huntsman sophomores, Nikhil Gupta, Ayina Anyachebelu, and Samidha Sane, along with two other teammates, won the MIT COVID-19 Challenge: Africa Takes on COVID-19 Hackathon. They competed against over 1,500 individuals from over 100 countries. Their team created a solution that will repurpose the supply chains of recycling plants and organizations on the ground in Nigeria to mass-produce sustainable, inexpensive PPE constructed from plastic waste products, all the while employing low-income citizens and cleaning up the environment. It is worth mentioning that they were the only undergraduate team selected to participate in their track! Congratulations Nikhil, Yina, Samidha, and team! This is such an amazing initiative and we cannot wait to see the tremendous impact that it will make! 🤗🌟
