The 2017 Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition has concluded, thank you to everyone who participated!
The 2017 Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition was a smashing success with all the teams coming together at Stony Brook University to compete in the Center for Leadership & Service building! A incredible “Thank you” to all of the staff in the Community Relations Department at Stony Brook, especially Ms. Joan Dickinson, for the incredible amount of work put in to make the day a success! Thank you to Spellman High Voltage Electronics Corp. which came on as a title sponsor! They demonstrated their passion for innovation and dedication to the next generation of young science minds with their partnership with CSTL and the Clean Tech Competition.
The winners were Ms. Audrey Shine and Ms. Alyssa Iryami of Plainview, New York!!
They took home $10,000 USD and now have a professional mentorship to help continue to develop their idea and take it to the world stage!
Our 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners are below as well as their winning idea. They are seen with Dr. Loren Skeist (left), President and CEO of Spellman High Voltage Electronics Corp. and Dr. Ray Ann Havasy, Director of CSTL (right).

This year’s theme was “Creating A Greener Future“. The challenge was to identify a specific problem associated with buildings or homes, building materials, problems associated with efficiency, damage mitigation, indoor environmental quality or a related topic of their choosing. Teams identified a specific problem, explained and analyzed in detail, before they designed a solution that mitigated these negative impacts. The projects and ideas were stunning to behold!
