The UAH team won first place in the The Switchblade Project, which is a wind turbine competition in which high school and college students redesign and manufacture the blades of a military wind power system originally designed for the high speed winds of Afghanistan. Read more about the competition here: http://bit.ly/1Gbacb0 
An Army engineer never dreamed that his quest to find a solution to a wind power problem would be solved by college and high school students but that’s exactly what happened Wednesday at the Switchblade event at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

"We start off with a writing prompt exercise and then share our stories with each other," says Lockett, a senior English and Communication Arts double major. And though many members are students in the College of Liberal Arts, not all are. "Biology and engineering majors have joined us, and some of them have even completed novels in this club!" http://on.uah.edu/1yy6fzI
Thanks to the Writer's Block, students at UAH were treated to the campus' first literary arts magazine in six years. Birmingham, Ala., native Jessica Lockett founded the student-run organization in 2013, which serves as an outlet for creative writers all over the UAH campus to meet and share their writing. Now, she says, "when people come to UAH they can see that it really is a well-rounded school."
