During this last semester of my undergraduate career, I have gotten the opportunity to participate with a group of honors students to form a team to compete in the 2019 Biodesign Challenge. This experience cumulates into a trip to New York from June 18-23 this upcoming summer. This course is a continuation of the Sticky Innovation Honors course I took last semester, with the same mentors; Nandita Sheth and Dr. Whitney Gaskins. In general, the biodesign challenge is a program that encourages students to use science and research methods to create and design products that innovate and solve real-world problems. We are looking to combat the "wicked" problem of colony collapse disorder in bee populations; and looking to help solve the very real threat that these important pollinators face in the current environment humans have created. We view this issue through the lens of focusing on the four major problems that bees face (4 P’s: pesticides, pathogens, parasites, and poor nutrition). To help alleviate some of these stresses on bee populations, we are designing a hive that helps encourage propolis production; a sticky resin that has been shown to have important antimicrobial functions in the hive. We are also designing an ideal model for pollination in orchards that can help alleviate some of the stress the hives are under. I am very excited for this competition this summer, and very thankful for this unique experience that has stretched me by emphasizing the art and design aspect inherent in the science of problem solving.
