Creativity Examined in Winter Edition of the "Millersville Review"
Dr. Scott A. Warner and several of his students are featured in this winter's issue of the Millersville Review discussing creativity and the process he teaches students to evaluate their creativity. Dr. Warner helps his students to understand that creativity does not always translate into spontaneous thinking, but can be born out of a process that leads to a new discovery. The article showcases Dr. Warner and several of his students as well as other faculty members on campus.

AEST Students Wrap It Up in the ICPF Competition
Two teams of students from the department of Applied Engineering, Safety & Technology took top honors at the recent International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF) "Best of the Best" design competition. The team of Bryan Parrish, Dan Sparkes, and Drew Kramer took top honors with the team of Erin Sensenig and Nolan Myers coming in close second. In order to qualify for the "Best of the Best" competition, these teams competed in the Association of Independent Corrugated Converters (AICC) student design competition last fall, placing first and second.
Part of the "Best of the Best" competition included a five-minute video created by each group explaining planning the objective, the research conducted, design, and other background information. You can view the two Millersville submissions. The winning video created by Bryan Parrish, Dan Sparkes, and Drew Kramer can be seen at here. Erin Sensenig and Nolan Myers' video is here.
Each team receiving honors came away with a plaque and a monetary award for their efforts - along with a great experience.
