15 June 2021

The U of A team, Fentagone has placed first at the World's Challenge Challenge global finals at Western University. This is the first time a U of A team wins the global finals. The team has been awarded $30,000 towards their project. Earlier this year, Fentagone won the Telus Innovation Challenge, which had a first place prize of $100,000. The team's idea is focused on developing a 1mL syringe that allows users to gain feedback on whether the drug in use contains fentanyl. You can read more about their project here. Congratulations to the team!
