Presentations

The Future of Light 2.0 Other Presenters: Michael Miller, Leslie Chase, Kianna Brevig, Daniel Reed, Denver Overend, Elizabeth Friend, Ian Steenstra, Diana Klyuchnik

The Engineering Ambassadors will present on the applications of digital lighting; Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) for a multitude of applications beyond lighting. This includes communications and large scale applications of LED lighting systems. Students will be exposed to technological advances that they probably never imagined and how crucial they are to the electronic devices they enjoy in today’s world. The presentation is suited for but not limited to general middle school class, technology and physics (core, regents and AP) classes.

Designing A Safe Roller Coaster Other Presenters: Nikhilas Murthy, Louis Caponi, Casey-Ellen Collette, Rachel Stagnitti, Carly Nadler, Amy Reynolds, Andrew Gabbeitt, Skyler Lafemina, Hilary Fiorentino, Frederick Hole, Denver Overend, Zoe Westwater, Jane Edgington, Lily O'Halloran, Jonathan Minchala

Roller coasters are engineering marvels that provide the ultimate physical experience, but some people are fearful to take a ride on one. While there are many reasons, this presentation dispels the myths of poor safety and inherent risk involved with riding roller coasters. Three main aspects are analyzed including the effects of forces on the body, particular track design considerations, and restraining systems implemented on different coaster types.
