Work performed by the team
The students came up with and developed the idea during brainstorming sessions in the firsts months of the competition, letting the project evolve throughout the summer. All of the designs, constructs and experiments were performed by the students of the 2017 Paris Bettencourt team.
Instructors and Advisors provided support, advice and feedback when needed. The team was hosted by the CRI lab inside of the Paris-Descartes University. If more than one person is listed, we highlighted the main person responsible
