I Want One of Those: Breathable Buff

It’s hard enough for asthmatics to breath. Add in cold and exertion and the problem is even more dire. That’s why students created the Breathable Buff, a face mask that retains heat and moisture to make breathing far easier for asthmatic athletes during the winter. The washable buff has interchangeable filters to use in different weather conditions. Inventors Carly Tymm ’20, Ruth Nordhoff  ’20, Samuel Gochman ’18, dual-degree student Madeleine Genereux, and Kevin Yang ’20 won the winter term Phillip R. Jackson Award for best overall performance in ENGS 21: Introduction to Engineering. Their teaching assistant was Brandt Slayton ’18.
