  • Robert Rose and Austin Young, juniors in the 2013-14 school year, came together to create a project which earned the honor of competing at this year’s ISEF.

  • The project is designed to remove harmful gasses from the atmosphere and turn them into renewable sources of energy. The project has taken a lot of work and collaboration between the two students, their teacher, and a little assistance from McNeese State University professors. The final product is both impressive and advanced for the students’ education level. Rose explains how the product works:

  • Although the students did not place at this year’s ISEF, their experience has fulfilled the goal of inspiring learning and creativity in the areas of STEM. Rose and Young are dedicated to continued research and development of their current project to better prepare and present for another invitation to the 2015 ISEF.
