Improving water infrastructure to prevent the spread of disease. Using banana fibre as a plastic alternative. Protecting marine life through microplastic removal.
These are a few of the innovative ideas McMaster students brought to the university-wide round of the World’s Challenge Challenge (WCC), an international competition developed at Western University, which brings together teams of students to present innovative solutions that address global issues identified in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
McMaster teams shared their innovative ideas earlier this spring to earn a spot in the final round of the global competition, to be hosted virtually by Western University from June 7 to 10. Leading into the WCC finals, learn more about the McMaster projects that will go on to represent Marauders on the global stage in early June.
