CWRU Students Awarded Prizes in Knovel University Challenge!
Congratulations to Amy Wen and Karin Lee, 2nd year graduate students in Biomedical Engineering, for their success in the Knovel University Challenge!
Knovel is a database with full text of over 2,000 leading reference handbooks, conference proceedings and statistical data for researchers in the applied sciences. Its University Challenge asks students to use Knovel to answer questions correctly each week for a chance to win prizes.
This year’s contest had 4,500 student participants and unprecedented global participation. As challenge winners, Amy received a Western Digital HD Live Streaming Media Player and Karin was awarded Beats By Dre Tour Earphones.
Neither winner had previously participated in the challenge, but after playing Amy says that Knovel will help save time in locating information she needs for research. Her favorite features are the interactive tables and graphs that allow you to easily sort through data. Karin says that Knovel gives her a wider range of resources for both schoolwork and lab work. Her favorite aspect of the database is that it gives easy and organized access to many different resources and references.
In terms of participation in the challenge CWRU finished in the top ten schools, landing at #8 with 124 players. Great job to all involved!
