Assistant professor Stella Boess of the Industrial Design Engineering faculty was the contact person for Delft University of Technology. In Delft, four teams competed to win the trip to Seattle as part of the Exploring Interactions autumn class and Interactive Technology Design spring class. Team “Elevator” won: Jaap Rutten, Segourney Muntslag, Natalia Papadopoulou, Iris Ploum and Maarten Karremans.
