CLEAN TECH COMPETITION



The Clean Tech Competition is a unique, worldwide research and design challenge for pre-college youth. The program encourages scientific understanding of real-world issues and the integration of environmentally responsible energy sources. Each year, the Clean Tech Competition addresses an issue that is grounded in core technological competency areas and focuses on the next great engineering challenges. The competition is designed to foster a deeper understanding of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) related concepts, recognize outstanding talent, and prepare the next generation of globally competitive innovators.

Congratulations to PSHS Main Campus Grade 11 students: Maded N. Batara III and Justine Marcus A. Opulencia! Their research project: “Development of an Integrated Online System for the Regulation of Household Electricity Consumption” has bested 15 entries in the Philippines and 200 entries worldwide, and is among the 10 finalists at the 2017 Spellman High Voltage Electronics Clean Tech Competition 2017. Maded and Justine will showcase their paper at Stony Brook University, New York, USA on July 14, 2017.

The PSHS Foundation, Inc. will seek “godparents” for Godchildren Maded and Justine who will help send them to Stony Brook. We are proud of you both. Prayers and wishes for a great presentation in Stony Brook. Make PSHS and the Philippines prouder!

The (30) 2017 Semi- Finalists are here!

MAY 8, 2017 BY FRANK

2017 proved to be just as incredible, if not more so, than 2016! There were 26 different nations represented, from Ethiopia, Turkey, the Bahamas, Canada, China and France, the United States, Ireland South Africa, Malaysia and Mexico among them.

The judges had GREAT questions of me and the papers they had to score and had great comments regarding the papers such as the following: “You did an excellent job justifying your design, giving reasons for why you chose the specifications that you did. You also did a great job in thinking about re-design options depending on the results of preliminary tests. I think this is a great example of an engineering approach.” As you can imagine with all the submitted papers I can’t list all the accolades but if you want to know, please email me at CleanTech@cstl.org.

Please help me congratulate all of our Semi-Finalists! They worked incredibly hard on their ideas and to simply be selected out of a pool of just about 200 papers is an incredible achievement. I’ll be in touch more as the week goes on with our semi-finalists but for those who didn’t make it, take nothing but pride in your achievement! You entered, you found your problem, created a solution, wrote a paper, you stepped up to help! Your idea can help Create A Greener Future in ways our semi-finalists couldn’t imagine.

Semi-Finalists, welcome. Come Monday the 15th, you’ll find out if you’re on your way to Stony Brook University to showcase your idea. Try not to be nervous I’ll be in touch.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OUR SEMI-FINALISTS!
