Abir Qamhiya: Inventor of the Year. The Iowa State University professor
invented a geometric-based search engine called CADSEEK, which allows
engineers to search the Web based on 30 geometric shapes. Because it uses 3D geometry instead of text-based descriptions, it provides unparalleled search
precision. An engineer can use the search engine, for example, to find parts that
will make designing new parts more efficient, and a physician can use it to
analyze MRI data.
Larry Genalo: Technology Educator of the Year. The associate professor at
Iowa State University helped create Toying with Technology, designed to
introduce K-12 students to science, engineering and technology. The program
includes a hands-on laboratory filled with LEGO robots that demonstrate
technology and innovation for students.
