RumbleLab, submitted by Moultrie Ball, is a monthly subscription box service focused on delivering hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) educational materials to parents’ doorsteps. The idea won a $5,000 award, presented by EngenuitySC executive director Meghan Hickman at the First Base Building at BullStreet Commons on Wednesday night.
The contest is sponsored by Nephron Pharmaceuticals.
With the prize money, RumbleLab will test a classroom model concept with North Springs Elementary in Richland County School District Two and begin scaling its business.
The winner was selected from among three finalists in live voting by nearly 300 Ignite! event attendees. The two other finalists were Bonded, a women’s empowerment online media platform submitted by Brittany Kilpatrick and Samantha Shapin; and Kitchen Conversations by Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands, a proposed “Tupperware party”-style sexual health conversation series for parents submitted by Mary Dell Hayes and Kayce Singletary.
