Many great innovations, societal changes and inventions begin with the question, “what if…?” Fourteen Delaware Innovation Fellows (DIF) hailing from 11 majors presented answers to their “what if” questions at the 2022 DIF Innovation Showcase. Their answers were the basis of their capstone innovation project and the culmination of work completed during their three-phase fellowship.
From food innovations and health devices to education and upcycling, Guests to the 2022 DIF Innovation Showcase enjoyed the ideas and ingenuity of the next generation of entrepreneurs.
Below are student and project highlights from the evening. Congratulations to the Delaware Innovation Fellows Class of 2022:
Delaware Innovation Fellows is one of a handful of university enrichment programs that brings together students from all over the university for programming that complements students’ majors and develops interests and skills beyond traditional classroom learning.
“DIF allowed me to collaborate and interact with students outside my major and connected me with some of my best friends at UD,” said Reilly Boyle. “I had the opportunity to connect with industry leaders and local entrepreneurs because of DIF and learn from their experiences. This has helped me connect ideas from my STEM major and apply entrepreneurial thinking to problems I am solving.”
