GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - The fourth annual Colorado Mesa University Student Showcase was held Friday afternoon at the university's main campus.
The showcase featured 199 projects presented by 430 undergraduates from both CMU and Western Colorado Community College.
Among the presentations were "Mathematics of Solar Power," "Underwater Resort-Casino" and "Tamarisk Control." Many of the projects took years to develop.
"[It was] a minimum of 200, 300 man hours, just getting it to the point it's at," said Forrest Zerbe, a student at Colorado Mesa University working on the "Tamarisk Control" project.
Students' creations were displayed at seven venues across campus.
Officials say the professional grade presentations prepare students for work in today's forward-thinking economy.
