Sebastian took home the gold for the 2017 NSF-ERC Perfect Pitch Contest! This is the second time a Defect Lab member has won the contest, the first being Pablo Coll in 2015. In the contest, Sebastian represented QESST (Quantum Energy and Sustainable Solar Technologies) by presenting his idea for a solar powered, first aid deployment kit called “SOKED” or the “Solar Optimized Kit for Emergency Deployment”. By winning, he took home a beautiful trophy, currently housed in the Defect laboratory, and a generous $5000!
