KES Challenge Winners- Summer 2015

Congratulations to Brennen Gleason, Ahmed Saad and Chelsea Carter for winning the KES Challenge with their Smart Alarm Product.

Their product is a smart family of alarm clocks that connects to maps and other traffic monitoring services to assist moms who have more than a half hour drive to work. The "mother" alarm clock is able to connect to each of her children's alarm clocks through in-home WiFi. This allows the mother to set all of her children's alarm clocks with one click of a button.

In the morning, the "mother" alarm clock will check for traffic, accidents, and construction back ups and wake the mother up earlier if her route needs to be adjusted or if it will take longer to get the children to their morning locations. The children's alarm clocks will simultaneously be adjusted to wake up the children the equivalent amount of time earlier as the mother did.

The KES Challenge was created for students to hone their entrepreneurial skills. To create their product, students used some of the 12 steps laid out in Disciplined Entrepreneurship by Bill Aulet.

The Kettering Entrepreneur Society meetings are on Thursdays at 8 PM in the KES Idea Room, 5th Floor CC. All are invited.
