Wesleyan School alumnus, Scott Schroer, and his team have won the 2015 InVenture Prize for their safety device, the FlameTech Grill Defender.
Schroer, a Dunwoody Resident, is studying mechanical engineering at Georgia Tech. He, along with Will Sweet and Alex Roe, invented the safety device for gas grills that alerts users when gas levels have reached an unsafe threshold – stressing safety is the biggest priority.
The trio took the first place prize, which includes $20,000 and a free U.S. patent filing by Georgia Tech’s Office of Technology Licensing.
InVenture Prize at Georgia Tech is an interdisciplinary innovation competition open to all undergraduate students and recent graduates of the Georgia Institute of Technology.
The faculty at Wesleyan School, a K-12 college preparatory school located in Gwinnett County, is so proud of this class of 2010 graduate.
