Two groups from the Green Materials Laboratory participated in the Design Category of the recently concluded 2019 Undergraduate Project Competition (UPC). Team GaGaCa- composed of Kenneth Madamba, Gabby Nunag and Vinz Villanueva- made it with their project entitled "Synthesis and characterization of hydrogel nanocomposites as a novel method for the desalination of seawater" to the Poster Exhibit Round, which was held last May 20 at the ICE Building. Meanwhile Team GaGoYu- composed of Renz Garduque, Brandon Gococo and Caitlin Yu, and co-advised by Engr. PJ Nalzaro- made it with their project "Synthesis and characterization of sodium carboxylmethyl cellulose/hydroxypropyl cellulose/sodium alginate hydrogel for agricultural water storage and controlled nutrient release" to the Final Round, which was held last May 31 at the DMMME Building.
