Often times an organizations and companies work in concert with others, and this year there are many who’ve come together to make Clean Tech the prestigious, international competition that it is.
It goes without saying that Spellman High Voltage Electronics Corp. is an essential part of the Competition that now bears its name. Dr. Loren Skeist and his entire company have been an integral part of Clean Tech since 2017 and will continue to do so until 2020! Not only have they provided a financial commitment to Clean Tech, but their employees have been first and Final round judges. The company has opened their doors to our Finalist teams to take a tour and learn more about the high voltage electronics world and why it’s vital to our everyday life. This commitment to STEM and Clean Tech is demonstrated in a quote from the president and CEO himself: “Spellman is honored to partner with CSTL and Stony Brook University on this year’s Clean Tech Competition. Our long-standing commitment to clean technology and sustainability is reflected in the values of this wonderful program which promotes and rewards innovative clean technology product ideas submitted by teams of high school students from around the world. These brilliant minds represent the leaders of the future in this growing and important field and we are proud to sponsor this competition in support of their endeavors”.
Nalgene and its parent company Thermo Fisher Scientific are the reason that our attending Finalist teams will be heading home with a 32 oz. wide-mouth bottle. Nalgene is known for its BPA-free reusable water bottles but also offers other reusable products and innovative ideas to help keep materials out of our nation’s landfills. Aimee Gasparre in their marketing department shares Nalgene’s passion for STEM and innovation: “Nalgene is proud to participate in the Spellman Clean Tech Competitions these past few years. Nalgene and Thermo Fisher Scientific, our parent company, strive to make the world a cleaner, healthier and safer environment, just like you all do! We wish all of you a very successful 2018 competition!”
