On July 12, 2018, Stony Brook University is joining The Center for Science Teaching and Learning (CSTL) in presenting the Spellman High Voltage Electronic Clean Tech Competition. The event, open to the public, will take place in the Wang Center.
As a highly rated “green” college, Stony Brook University is proud to host this international competition for a second year in a row. The campus invites everyone to join the event and meet these innovative students and see their projects.
The world-wide, pre-college youth competition encourages participants to address real-world issues with a scientific understanding through research and design methods. Under the challenge topic, students participating must identify a current problem that exists and propose a solution using clean technology. The topic this year is “Solving Climate Change.”
