Vienna Science and Engineering Fair

24 March 2016

On March the Twelfth the Vienna Science and Engineering Fair was held at the school Lycée Français de Vienne. This year the topic was Transportation. Last year I also attended the Vienna Science Fair and my group got very good results, we received an excellent rating.

This year Denis Mistrik, Matthew Jakubek and I (Simon Stora) wanted to go and create a project that somehow related to this year's current topic. We came up with the idea of creating our own Flow Battery, a relatively new technology which uses the exchange of ions to create electricity. It is related to transportation as the company nanoFlowcell is using this as a form of powering an electric car. The main reason we chose this project though was to push it to the limit and ignore the genuine stereotype that kids cannot pursue projects that are much more difficult than anything they could understand, as the flow battery requires you to have a complex understanding of physics and chemistry to fully comprehend the way it creates electricity. In fact our project was so complex that we needed to order a special Selective Ion Exchange Membrane from the USA, which is pretty much a material that allows the ion exchange to occur between the two ionic liquids that we used in the flow battery. This year our group received an Excellent rating again while the other two groups that entered also received an Excellent and a Very Good rating. The other two teams were: Melisa Sirotkova with "Improving Inter-vehicle Communication" and Daniel Mistrik and Ebrahim Al-Qanaei with "The effect of Calcium on Driver Alertness."  I would recommend it to anyone as I think even if you fail at making your project successful you will still improve your personal skills as you have to be persistent.

Update…..Melisa Sirotkova also received a special Women in Nuclear Award for the best project in the Senior Division!
