Engineering seniors recently had the opportunity to help an alumnus improve his invention. Mel Jackson (’10 B.A., Psychology) collaborated with a senior design team to help him perfect the Tabletizer, his newly patented device that attaches underneath a table, counter, bar, or desk to provide a convenient way to sanitize a person’s hands.
“I wanted to create a more convenient way for a person to sanitize their hands instead of going to the restroom or using a distanced sanitizer location,” Jackson says. “Now, users of the Tabletizer can remain seated or standing closer to its location.”
Austin Harvey, who graduated with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering last month, led the team of students, which included John Wortham, Jennifer Okpala, and Rocky Vera Cruz.
