The 2015 University Program Contest has seen another year of enjoyable videos from the students. We are absolutely delighted with each university for participating and rallying support for their video. However, only one university can win, and the winner was chosen exclusively by the people.
We are pleased to announce, North Carolina State University has won the 2015 University Program Contest. Congratulations, Wolfpack! NCSU will be receiving a complete ultrasound kit to be used for learning purposes at the university.
The winning video included a bovine rendition of Bruno Mars, Uptown Funk. The students and professors danced alongside furry friends while expressing their need for an ultrasound.
NCSU has competed for three years straight in the University Program Contest. Finally, year three, they have accomplished their goal and took the gold, blue and gold that is.
Danielle Lindquist, DVM & PHD student in Food Animal Pharmacology, states, “Currently we are learning palpation without any aided technology, winning this machine will set us apart in the food animal and equine industry as we graduate. Not only will we know how to use ultrasound for pregnancy checks, but also for respiratory diseases and the numerous other applications of ultrasound.”
When asked how they will integrate this into learning opportunities Danielle stated, “We plan on coordinating one on one student uses with the machine, putting on wet labs for the Bovine Club, using it as a teaching tool, in addition to respiratory research.”
BCF Technology is happy to award this ambitious and hardworking group of the students with an Easi-Scan ultrasound system. Thank you to all teams who put in time and effort while competing in this contest.
