Heather Schenck

Heather Schenck, Chemistry & Biochemistry, received the award for a winning smart phone app proposal. This idea won first prize in the APPStart Challenge from WiSys. The 2022 APPStart Challenge began in March. Three finalists presented app designs in December; the winning design, for an app intended to help organic chemistry students, was presented by Heather Schenck. A company that will be founded to own the app will receive kick-start funding from WiSys to pursue app development and marketing.
