Oil left in the ocean can have detrimental effects on the health of marine life and the overall ecosystem. Currently, there has not been a solidified solution when it comes to effectively cleaning up oil in the ocean. We chose to test the efficacy of a sorbent, tire powder that has oleophilic properties, in cleaning up oil. Multiple trials were run with different amounts of tire powder to determine if the tire powder was absorbing oil. Based on the results we saw an increasing linear relationship between oil absorption and the amount of tire powder used. We also observed a certain amount of water being absorbed by the bag holding the tire powder.
The Smart Mask is an innovative way to combine testing methods, technology, and masks in order to combat the spread of COVID-19. Ideally, down the line, this technology could be applied to other viruses or pandemic situations. In order to do this, the team spoke with an expert, tested multiple masks, temperature strip placements, and
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a field that, although has been studied extensively, is filled with many opportunities for innovation due to its seemingly infinite amount of applications. The neural network is a form of AI that can analyze images and recognize them for what they are. A similar form of AI known as GPT-3 is
