2020 Winners
Dougherty Valley High School
San Ramon, California

Last year in California alone, 6,200 fires ravaged the Pacific coast, 2,300 buildings were destroyed, and more than 100 people were killed. The majority of fires in California are caused by dry hills surrounding suburban areas and slow relay of information to the fire department. The students created a low-cost sensor that can detect wind speed, humidity, and temperature, indicating a possible risk of fire in a particular area, and relaying that information back to the local fire department early.

Downtown Doral Charter Upper School
Doral, Florida

Flash Flooding is the leading cause of weather related deaths in the U.S. The city of Doral receives large amounts of precipitation especially during summer and hurricane season, but sediment obstruction and poor drainage have led to drainage system failures and flooding. The students created a device to detect sediment build-up and share real-time updates on the density of sediments in drains to local officials when structures need immediate cleaning and maintenance.

North Carolina School of Science and Math
Durham, North Carolina

An estimated 25% of recycling is contaminated by waste, making cross-contamination a tremendous problem for recycling centers across the country. The students created an app that uses image processing and machine learning algorithms to help people separate recyclables and non-recyclables.

Fairfield High School
Fairfield, Ohio

There are far too many child fatalities due to heat strokes from being locked in a hot car. There was a record high of 51 deaths in 2018. Since 1998, Ohio has had twenty reported deaths – the largest number of accidents in any northern state. The students developed a device that detects an unknown weight remaining in the car seat of a vehicle, which connects to an app that alerts car owners before they move too far away from the vehicle.

Omro High School
Omro, Wisconsin

Ice fishing is prevalent in Wisconsin, and 230,000 snowmobiles use trails that go over frozen water. Nationwide, nearly 8,000 people fall through the ice and drown each year. The students built a sensor that can determine ice thickness in real-time and relay that information via app, Stat-Ice, to help winter enthusiasts make educated decisions about going out on the ice.
