#TeamHandiHanger

So, you have multiple bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body wash and so forth, but in a wet shower they tumble all over and won’t stay on the small shelf area. 

Looking for a solution to the ever-present problem of shower storage, Topeka Design (a team led by a teacher and his former students) came up with the Handi Hanger system. A silicone sleeve with a hook holds the bottle in place upside down, hanging from a shower caddy. It frees up space and the gravity makes the last drops of liquid easier to get.

#TeamZipGlo

Two fathers and one kid each make up Team Jiggawatt. This squad offered a novel solution for the common headache of charger cords going missing. 

The ZipGlo plus into a wall socket, offering four sockets, and easily stores cables with an internal wrap-around system. There’s enough space on top to rest and charge two smartphones. Not only that, but it’s also a motion-activated night light.
