The most recent coference was held in April at Rowan University in Glassboro, N.J., where Ohio State students placed third in the "Brown Bag Competition." In the Brown Bag competition, teams were given a bag of various components and then were required to complete a challenge with some or all of the components. Each team could use only the components and documentation provided to complete the challenge. They could not use additional notes, references or aids, but had to rely on their knowledge and ingenuity.
