Grand Award Category Sponsorship
Mawhiba is honored to sponsor the
Energy: Sustainable Materials & Design
at the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF 2022)
. This is the premiere event for research and engineering projects for students in high school grade levels.
Mawhiba will present the Grand Awards to the top project winners.
Energy: Sustainable Materials & Design (EGSD)
Sponsored by King Abdul-Aziz & his Companions Foundation for Giftedness & Creativity
This category pertains to studies/processes involving the production and/or storage of energy. Mawhiba has made the commitment to sponsor this scientific category at ISEF 2022 because a large percentage of the graduate level and research center projects carried out in Saudi Arabia pertain to this field and indeed collaborate with the applicable sub-categories listed herein. It certainly compliments the student-centered communication and project integration focus of education in the Kingdom.
- Biological Process and Design
- Solar Process, Materials, and Design
- Energy Storage
- Wind and Water Movement Power Generation
- Hydrogen Generation and Storage
- Thermal Generation and Design
- Triboelectricity and Electrolysis
Biological Process and Design (BIO):
Studies involving using biological processes to produce sources of energy such as in microbial fuel cells, algae, biomass, fossil fuels and waste.
Solar Process, Materials, and Design (SOL):
The study and design of photovoltaics, including components such as collectors, concentrators, photoconductor composition and spectral sensitizers.
Energy Storage (EST):
The study of battery and storage cell composition and design.
Wind and Water Movement Power Generation (FLD):
The application of engineering principles and design concepts involving processes to generate power from fluid flow, including turbines design, angle of attack and surface optimization.
Hydrogen Generation and Storage (HYD):
The application of engineering principles and design concepts involving hydrogen production, optimization, and storage for energy production.
Thermal Generation and Design (THR):
Studies of generation of power from geothermal and other thermal sources, design, and processes.
Triboelectricity and Electrolysis (ELC):
Studies involving the generation of electricity from a static charge, electrolysis reaction and charged particles.
Other (OTH): Studies that cannot be assigned to one of the above subcategories. If the project involves multiple subcategories, the principal subcategory should be chosen instead of Other.
Judges may include university faculty and scientists, industrial engineers and scientists, representatives of private and federal research centers and agencies, medical researchers, post-doctoral fellows, and senior graduate students. Students are encouraged to design their posters in a clear and informative manner to allow pre-interview evaluation and to enable the interview to become an in-depth discussion. Considerable emphasis is placed on two areas: creativity and presentation, especially in the interview sessions.
