Charlie and I are undergraduate students in engineering and began work on ZooPoo when we realized the pressing need for a change to be made in local zoos. Our solution to the problem zoos face with the disposal costs of animal waste utilizes algae cultures as a method of recovering nutrients from the waste to produce a nutritionally effective supplement for animals to consume.
Our experience at Ignite was unlike any other. Ignite @ ASU served as a one stop shop where people with inspiring ideas could gather and share their thoughts. While presenting at Ignite, the two of us equally enjoyed the quick progression of slides. It allowed for a seamless transition between ideas and made for a one of a kind experience as a presenter. This feature complimented well with our presentation due to the different dimensions of ZooPoo. ZooPoo will provide an economical boost in public zoos, improve the nutritional quality of existent animal feed, and do so in a sustainable, environmentally friendly way.
