Eighth Graders Win 2nd in National Science Competition

Reported by on 5/15/20

Three District 204 eighth graders who attend the John C. Dunham STEM Partnership School took second place in the nation in the 28th Annual Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision competition, the world’s largest K-12 science competition. Vamshika Bejawar, Sri Lakshmi Battula, and Manya Davis were part of a team that sought to solve the problems of rising global carbon emissions challenges, creating severe weather patterns and biodiversity loss around the world. Using an approach they titled, “CO2RS: A Cleaner Future,” the team developed “carbon scrubbers” from a Hybrid-Na-CO2 system and a dual-engine to convert waste CO2 to electricity and methane, which can be used to fuel an environmentally friendly vehicle. The all-female team worked to creatively redesign the existing car exhaust system into an eco-friendly solution.
