A team of Kittyhawk Post members selected two science fair projects for Post awards. The winners were chosen for having the best engineering and environmental projects at West District Science Day, held at Central State University on 22 March. Tom Kolber, Mark Goltz, Stan Brown, Justin Delorit, Drew Titone, and Rebecca Knolle made up the team of judges from the Post who selected the winners.
Thomas Chaney, who is in the 10th grade at Tippecanoe High School, won best engineering project for his work titled “Using TEGs to Increase Solar Panel Efficiency.”
Mark Minardi is in the 9th grade and attends Carroll High School. He received the Eric Su Yong Goltz Award for the best environmental project for his study titled “Removing Copper from Water Using Banana Peels.”
Both students were invited to attend the Post April meeting to receive their awards and present their projects. Be sure to attend the meeting to see the work of these outstanding future scientists.
