The academy, part of the National Academies - created by Congress as a science and technology advisory organization - also awarded the $500,000 Bernard M. Gordon Prize to the founders of the Learning Factory, an undergraduate education program designed to give students experience in solving challenges posed by industry.

The Learning Factory originated from a coalition formed by three universities, Sandia National Laboratories and 36 industrial partners. Founders Jens E. Jorgensen, John S. Lamancusa, Lueny Morell, Allen L. Soyster and Jose Zayas-Castro will be honored.

Both prizes will be presented Feb. 21 in Washington, D.C.
