TruTech Challenge Winners Announced

The Teaching and Technology Roundtable (TLTR) announced the winners of the TruTech Challenge at Truman’s Fifth Annual Technology Fair Feb. 7.

Grand prize winners, taking home all-in-one printers donated by Dell, included Oleksiy Golovin, a junior physics and computer science double major from Kent, Ohio, and the faculty-student research group consisting of Diane Johnson, associate professor of communication; Alexander Horn, a senior computer science major from St. Louis; Justin Seiwell, a junior communication major from Ballwin, Mo.; and Gergana Stoianova, a sophomore communication studies major from Bulgaria.

The TruTech Challenge is a juried competition showcasing effective educational use of technology by faculty, staff and students.

Golovin’s submission was a software application he developed for the operation and collection of data from an astronomical photometer. The faculty-student group submitted their development and use of an open-source online learning repository for a study unit on the space shuttle Challenger tragedy.

All 18 participants in the competition were awarded gift certificates and iPod accessories donated by Sodexho and the Truman Bookstore.
