2015 Team OR winners at Intel ISEF

Team OR winners at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair May 2015

Special awards

Innovation Exploration Award

From the first rocket research in 1936, to the first US satellite in 1958, to the many missions to learn about Venus, Neptune, Jupiter and most recently the Mars Curiosity Lander in 2012, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology (Caltech), is a place where science, technology and engineering intermix. JPL produces iconic robotic space explorers sent to every corner of the solar system, helping us discover how the universe, the solar system, and life formed and evolved. JPL was established in 1944 by Caltech, one of the world's premier scientific and technical universities whose mission is to expand human knowledge and benefit society through research integrated with education.

Thank you for your patience while the website has been down. I am now looking for a new server to host it. Meanwhile Team OR has been going strong in Phoenix. The Facebook page has an updated picture.

Oregon Students Return Triumphant From International Science and Engineering Fair

Of the 25 projects selected to represent Oregon at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair this year, 14 projects presented by 17 students and representing 10 different Oregon schools, won a cumulative total of $56,400 in prize and scholarship money and three trips.
Merlo Station High School students Demitri Hopkins, 18, Forrest Betton, 18 and Eric Thomas, 18, won Best in Category with their Electrical and Mechanical Engineering project titled "Inertial Electrostatic Confinement Fusion Using an Electrostatic Focusing Lens". The boys received previous media attention when they were selected to present their project featuring an original fusion reactor design to President Barack Obama in February when he visited the Intel Ronler Acres campus in Hillsboro. The boys' school along with the fair at which they qualified to attend Intel ISEF, the Intel Northwest Science Expo, will each receive a $1000 grant as part of the award, in addition to the $8000 in prize money the boys will split.

Team Oregon in the Press

There's an Oregon Live article listing the Intel NWSE best of fair winners and all the members of Team Oregon by regional fair. Check it out.

If you scroll down the article you'll notice that one of the project titles is a link. Seems that the team of Forrest Betton, Eric Thomas and Demitri Hopkins from Merlo Station High School got to chat with President Obama while he was in town and share their project with him.

Media Bonus: Here's President Obama's weekly address about his visit to Intel, with some other familiar faces at about the 3:21 marker.

 

Team OR Member Laurie Rumker Participates in White House Science Fair

The latest newsletter from Society for Science and the Public, the organization that oversees the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair each year, highlights Team Oregon member Laurie Rumker's participation in the first ever science fair held at the White House.

Read all about it.

Laurie is a student at Oregon Episcopal School, and progressed to Intel ISEF in 2009 and 2010 through the Aardvark Science Expo. This past May she won First in the Environmental Science category at Intel ISEF, in addition to a scholarship from the Office of Naval Research, a scholarship to the Florida Institute of Technology and a scholarship to the Oregon Institute of Technology.
