Intel ISEF 2018 Team Profile – Emma Serisier – Effects of Storage Conditions and Time on Egg Quality

Emma found that over time the environmental conditions that eggs are stored under have a significant influence on their internal quality. There were identifiable interactions between the temperature and environmental factors with the egg quality. Increased storage temperature resulted in weight loss, increase in pH and visual factors such as size of air cell, runniness of albumen, form of yolk and odour. An increase in pH was observed in most eggs regardless of storage conditions.

Intel ISEF 2018 Team Profile – Lachlan Bolton – Future Board

Lachlan’s challenge was to design and build an extendable modular surfboard that could fit in any car. His design, the Future Board, is the world’s first ultra-portable, extendable surfboard. It has the ability to breakdown to half its original size and fit into a regular bodyboard bag. Its unique functionality allowing it to be extended in length creates more flexibility for surfers when choosing the right board for the conditions making it a truly innovative device. It is made from 100% recycled materials making it a sustainable device.

Intel ISEF 2018 Team Profile – Aniruddh Chennapragada – Novel Use of Bio Based Materials in Metal-Air Batteries

Aniruddh successfully prepared activated carbon from banana peel.  His project then went on to characterise the activated carbon synthesised with FT-IR spectroscopy and SEM. Finally, he used his activated banana peels as cathodic material in an aluminium air battery proving it is an effective material for use in battery technology showing that there is great potential for utilising organic waste like banana peels for preparing chemically activated materials that have applications in energy technology.

STANSW Young Scientist ISEF 2018 Delegation

Our team of excited young students are making final preparations to travel to Pittsburgh, U.S.A. to represent Australia and NSW at Intel ISEF 2018! In just over a week’s time we will set off with our largest delegation ever to ISEF with 9 ISEF delegates and our BroadCom Masters representative. The team includes our first Rural Young Scientist delegates and will be accompanied by two teacher chaperones from the Young Scientist committee as well as the Rural Young Scientist Teacher awardee.

 

The range and depth of the student projects is truly inspiring – please visit back soon to see profiles of each delegate.

We will be keeping in touch while we are in Pittsburgh via a range of social media platforms. Please follow our progress via
