This spring, we reported on a student project titled "Carbon Capture Using Solid Sorbents" that placed in the 2018 Florida State Science and Engineering Fair. The project used SenseAir's K33 ICB CO2 sensor.
Recently, his father sent us this update:
The news keeps getting better!
As you know, my son Glenn competed in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in May. ISEF, a program of Society for Science & the Public, is the world’s largest international pre-college science competition.
Each year, approximately 1,800 high school students from more than 75 countries, regions, and territories are awarded the opportunity to showcase their independent research and compete for $4 million in prizes. Student finalists reaching ISEF represent the Best-of-the-Best as they must attain top placement in their respective state or country of origin to qualify for the competition. Project judging at ISEF is both rigorous and exhaustive, and is carried out by over 1,000 science, engineering, and industry professionals with PhD backgrounds, or equivalent degrees, and/or six years of relevant experience.
Glenn, using CO2 Meter’s K33-ICB CO2 sensors to monitor carbon dioxide removal from simulated industrial flue gas using amine-tethered organic polymers, had a podium finish at ISEF 2018 and received 2nd Place in Earth and Environmental Sciences, ranking him as one of the finest pre-collegiate environmental research projects in the world.
All of this couldn’t be achieved without your support. Glenn, my wife, and I are most grateful. Ongoing research is in progress...I’ll keep you posted.
The entire staff of CO2Meter is excited to keep up with this story, and we're all looking forward to his future success.
