There is a contest sponsored by the Center for Science Teaching and Learning, called the Clean Tech Competition. This one seems really interesting, where a team can identify a pollution problem in their community, or in any location in the world, and develop a clean energy solution for the problem. If you are a finalist team, they will give a stipend to actually build the device, and you present your work. There is a $15,000 prize. Check out the site here. Ms. Fitzpatrick will be the sponsor of a team if there is interest!!
Let Doc V know if you are interested.
