Creating Solutions(left to right) Abid Alum, Hnu Thaper, and Elijah Tyson are three graduates of the University of Buffalo, and brothers of Delta Sigma Pi. The three received the "Winners of the Western New York Region - Services" award for their intuition in developing ColdSpace, a refrigerated vending machine that allows the user to store their own food for up to 6 hour sessions. Our brothers were inspired by their own struggle to store food from home on campus during a full day of classes. The group reached this year’s Henry A. Panasci Jr. Technology Entrepreneurship Competition semi finals. They currently pursue a patent for their creation, hoping to have ColdSpace coolers in place across UB and campuses abroad. Tyson and Thaper stay busy elsewhere. In 2016 Tyson, along with Thaper, started the group UB Barbarians. A fitness program designed to get students together in the gym, exercising more, eating better, and choosing healthy lifestyles. Both ColdSpace and Barbarians pursue the core values of encouraging students live out healthy lifestyles.
