Graduate students Katie Fox and Sally Miller (landscape architecture and regional planning) are part of Team Green Latrine that is competing in the UMass Innovation Challenge Competition. Already the team has won $1,000 in the MinutePitch competition and an additional $1,000 for their performance in the ElevatorPitch competition. The team is advised by Dr. Caitlyn Butler (civil & environmental engineering), who created the Microbial Fuel Cell Latrine. They all traveled to Ghana last May to install the first latrine.
