Carbon Nanotube Membranes for Salt Rejection in Water Purification

Author: Caitlyn Brahim Peer Reviewer: Annasimone Andrawis Professional Reviewer: Thomas D. Lazzara Abstract Worldwide, about 700 million people have no access to clean water or sanitation. In 10 years, this number is expected to expand to 1.8 billion, or roughly one-fourth of the global population. To address this growing crisis, scientists have developed high performance synthetic membranes as a viable means of water purification. The development of these advanced membrane technologies with controlled and novel pore architectures is important for Read more…

At what rate will algae reproduce in a micro-gravitational setting versus on Earth?

AUTHORS: Morgan Giraud, Tara Thomas, Alana Roberts, Lulabel Seitz, Liza Strong, Miranna Lindberg, Gary Ellwood, Kim Garcia Arechiga, Lily Mitchell, Romeo Marroquin Ajcac, Alondra Arango-Soriano, Citlalle Calderon, Violet Wilson, Victor Brazil, Linda Righetti Judah. Peer Reviewer: Akhila Gundavelli Professional Reviewers: Dr. Frances Wilkerson SFSU and Dr. Carol Vines UCD ABSTRACT This study investigates the viability of growing microalgal biomass in a microgravity environment. Microalgal biomass has numerous useful applications; it can be used to produce biofuel, animal feed, and even Read more…

A novel micropipette approach to studying the mechanical forces and their effects on Zebrafish embryo development

Tom Liu, Michael Deng Marian High School, 273 Union Ave, Framingham, MA 01702 Peer Reviewer: Himanshi Verma A novel micropipette approach to studying the mechanical forces nd their effects on Zebrafish embryo development Tom Liu, Michael Deng Marian High School, 273 Union Ave, Framingham, MA 01702 Abstract Embryos undergo special morphogenesis, forming stereotyped embryonic structures, such as morula, blastula, gastrula, etc., across all different vertebrate species, an indication of a conserved mechanism for embryogenesis. Generation, maintenance and dynamics of these embryonic structures Read more…

A Comparative Study of Respiratory Effects of Air Pollution in Urban Dwellers and Biomass Pollution in Villagers

A Comparative Study of Respiratory Effects of Air Pollution in Urban Dwellers and Biomass Pollution in Villagers DIVYAM GOEL Amity International School, New Delhi & ACTION FOR CHILD RELIEF Professional Reviewer: Levente Pap Abstract Urban air pollution is largely attributed to vehicular and industrial emission whereas in rural areas, the air pollution mainly results from the combustion of biomass fuels and stubble burning.  The primary aim of this study was to compare the respiratory symptoms and abnormal lung functions between Read more…
