Congratulations to STIR Lab Senior Design Team for winning the “Best in Show” Award in the Senior Design Showcase! The Senior Design Team members Max Huebler, Mujahid Jaffer, Jody Kocis, Mary McIntosh and Ian Vickers received the highest award in the competition for designing “SafeLINC: A Youth-Suicide Prevention App,” with guidance from Dr. Pamela Wisniewski. The application is an interactive and collaborative suicide prevention tool for youth that engages both parents and clinicians in the safety planning process. The team was appreciated by judges and collaborators for their hard work and contribution towards the mental health and wellbeing of youth. The UCF College of Engineering & Computer Science posted an article (linked below) recognizing the team for their impressive design and contribution towards youth suicide prevention.
The STIR Lab is incredibly proud of all the Senior Design Team members for their accomplishment!
