UNLV Design Wins International Engineering Competition
UNLV Design Wins International Engineering Competition

Listen
AIR DATE: October 27, 2010

The idea was simple - make solar panels cheaper and easier for third-world countries to use - but it won them $5000 and an international prize. Three UNLV engineering students took home first place at a design competition sponsored by the United Nations and the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers. We talk to them about their prize-winning design, and how it can help lives in Pakistan.
