Jeramie Paz Travels to Pittsburgh for ISEF Fair

paz_featured

Sophmore Jeramie Paz traveled to Pittsburgh, PA to attend the 2015 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. At the fair he presented his project and also had the opportunity to meet Dr. John Mather, Nobel Prize Laureate (2006) in Physics and get his signature!  He won the Intel ISEF award at the Griffin-RESA Regional Science Fair held last February 3, 2015  where students from Butts, Fayette, Henry, Lamar, Newton, Pike, Spalding, and Upson counties competed for this top award.

His science project was on : “Innovative Solar-Powered Incubator to Prevent Preterm Neonatal Mortality”
Description: In resource-limited environments most premature births take place far from traditional hospitals where modern incubators are not available.  Moreover, erratic, poor quality, and persistent power failures where electricity is available only for a few hours at night in many areas have crippled the functionality of modern incubators. Solar energy can be used as an alternate source for keeping preterm neonates warm. The prototype that I developed is very promising and can provide immediate thermal care for preterm neonates before they receive proper neonatal care.  It will prevent high mortality rates of infants due to hypothermia. It will save lives.
