San Diego Chapter Takes Part in 2013 Science and Engineering Fair
SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Chapter selected three students for their outstanding exhibits at the 59th annual Greater San Diego Science and Engineering Fair.
For their efforts, the chapter awarded each student an ASHRAE certificate of recognition and a $200 savings bond. Teachers and schools of each student received a $400 donation to assist with in-classroom science and engineering education. Chapter awards, scholarships and other charitable donations are made possible though the ASRHAE San Diego Foundation, which manages the chapter’s long range charitable finances.
Recipients were Jonathan Wahl, eighth grade at Classical Conversations, “Air Conditioning vs. Open Windows: How to Cool Down Your Car Fast”; Analilia Valenzuela, eighth grade at St. Rose of Lima, with her project, “F.R.P Solar Water Heater”; and Weston Braun, senior at San Dieguito Academy, “FPGA Based Controller for High Frequency Induction Heating.”
Every year the number of qualified student projects increases, making the judging more difficult. The following chapter members represented ASHRAE as professional society judges: Hugh Eagan of Climatec, Sarah Ruiz of Certified Air Conditioning and Heather Schopplein of Bender Dean Engineering.
