Official website: The Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition
Registration for the 2018 Spellman High Voltage Electronics
Clean Tech Competition is open!
“Climate Change.” Two words that have somehow become a topic of heated discussion. “Are humans changing the climate?” has even become a question for debate! Human beings ARE adding more CO2, CH4, and N2O (Carbon Dioxide, Methane, Nitrous Oxide) to the atmosphere and these gasses DO help trap heat in our atmosphere, thus changing the climate. If we as a society aren’t careful, we will do irreparable damage to our precious blue planet and as a Finalist in the 2017 Competition’s title stated “There is No Planet-B”. Our next generation of scientists are going to tackle this very important topic!
The 2018 Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition has made its semifinalist announcement!! The Finalists will be announced on Monday, May 14th on the Clean Tech Blog. Even more exciting is that the public is welcome to attend the Final on Thursday, July 12th from 10:30 to 12:30. It’s a chance to meet these incredible young scientific minds from around the country and across the globe! The Charles B. Wang Center on the campus of Stony Brook University will serve as host, there’s no cost to attend, just a chance to see the incredible ideas these amazing high school students have created!
It was not easy to whittle down the incredible semi-finalist teams to the top 10! It might not be easy to believe but the top 10 teams were separated by a total of 2.5 points! 2.5 POINTS!! All of the Finalists have been invited. But I speak to you unselected semi-finalists, try to not be dejected. (Which I know is easy for me to say but not always easy to put into practice.) But take heart! If an invited-Finalist team cannot come to Stony Brook University for the Final, then you may be that next team selected as a Finalist.
Congratulations to all our Finalists!
I look forward to hearing from you in the coming days!
