2015 Cub Division Winners

 

1st Place – $500

Gage Tilly

Smoke Choke – Pollution Reduction for Wood Stoves

Smoke Choke uses an ESP (electrostatic precipitator) to reduce the particles of smoke escaping a wood stove chimney. When turned on, the smoke particles passing through are positively charged and are attracted to negatively charged plates; this takes the smoke particles out of the air stream.

 

 

 

 

2nd Place – $300

Corbin Becker

Plastic Digester for Recycling

This plastic digester degrades plastic in less than a year, using a metal tub, Sphingomonas and Pseudomonas spp. (aerobic soil bacteria), and some broth that the chemicals will live in; it also has utensils to stir up the broth and some tubing to aerate it. This idea also won the Fan Favorite award in the Cub Division.

Fraction App

This game would make you use fractions to achieve a goal; as you get farther into the game the fractions would get progressively harder, thus making learning fractions fun.

Honorable Mentions – $25

Cadence Conner &
Ahnika Esteson

SnowSki

This idea is for a ski and snowshoe in one. The snowshoe would have a box in the middle where you would normally stand; instead you would stand on the box. When you want to ski, you would open a flap on the bottom of the box  and you would unfold the ski from the box.

Variable Gears

Variable gears are two pulleys that are made up of two cones and are able to slide together and apart from each other. When the front wheel pulley slides in, the speed goes down and the torque goes up or vice versa. Also, when you shift, the gears slide rather than jerk and that will keep your momentum for while going uphill.

 

Griffin Godines

Soccer Helmets

This idea is for a comfortable, lightweight, and protective helmet that can be worn by soccer players to protect them from concussions due to hitting the ball with their heads.
