Early Wildfire Detection Using a Raspberry Pi Smoke Sensor Toby Chappell, Kelly Ly, Paola Portillo, Jon Le, Kady Lazarte

May 11, 2020 by Grand Challenges Initiative | Student presentations

To help mitigate the impacts of wildfires, we are creating a smoke detector sensor that has a stable power source, able to transmit a message through Raspberry Pi, and capable of detecting a wildfire when it occurs. We hope by developing this smoke detection system, we can help notify the authorities at a quicker rate

With plastic pollution on the rise, the environment has seen a huge negative impact. While biodegradable alternatives have been around, are they really the most efficient alternative? Biodegradables often don’t degrade well and still cause a negative environmental impact. Looking specifically at straws, there are a few disposable alternatives to plastic, but which are the

Eliminating drunk, drugged, and distracted driving is a serious challenge that the world has yet to solve. We thought it best to approach this challenge from a technological direction. We built a self-driving car that receives a camera feed, reroutes it to a stronger server, and sends instructions back to the car. This method of

Nutrition and Fitness on the Chapman Campus Emily Peterson, Emily Wong, Chelsea Zhao, Kennedy Guillen, Nawal Alasmari, Aubrey Sine

May 11, 2020 by Grand Challenges Initiative | Student presentations

The grand challenge our team recognized was that maintaining good overall health on college campuses is very difficult. Our team’s solution was to make nutritious eating and exercising convenient and easy to for Chapman students via our menu and fitness plan. The menus and fitness plan contributes to society at large because our scientific-based menus

Combating Ocean Acidification via Chemical Manipulation and Photosynthetic Aquatic Plants Ali Mahmoud, Cindy Rivas, Sarah Yang, Joely Fontana, Alexa Wilson

May 11, 2020 by Grand Challenges Initiative | Student presentations

Ocean acidification is currently a major issue because of the damages it causes on the ocean’s ecosystem beginning with coral bleaching. In some past research, aquatic plants have demonstrated the ability to increase pH of surrounding water through carbon fixation and photosynthesis. With these ideas in mind, a series of tank experiments were created for

On February 11th, 2017, a 44-year-old woman was rushed to the emergency room, experiencing an attack of primarily left-sided paralysis and an inability to speak. This attack was described as an unusual moment of altered consciousness with no immediate resolution. Our project follows the path of this individual’s differential diagnoses, leading to the final diagnosis

Using Permeable Concrete as a Solution for Urban Runoff and Flooding Peter Serour, Karchi Ertl, Fabian Valdez, Ahmad Alrusayes, Nyssa Arai, Desmond Talia

May 11, 2020 by Grand Challenges Initiative | Student presentations

Our goal is to create the most viable and cost-efficient permeable concrete. We want to make permeable concrete an alternative to combatting flash floods and other natural disasters. Using scientific journals, we have studied other scientists’ research of permeable concrete and applied it to our experiment. Permeable Concrete for Urban Runoff
