The purpose is to determine if a more effective solution by developing various 3D artificial auricles and external auditory canals will allow for better sound capture and transmittance. If a 3D engineered or artificially molded auricle and external auditory canal can be designed to effectively channel surrounding sound waves through it, then the sound waves will be detected by a sound probe.

My project was to design and build a solution to solving the problem of pollution due to the high emissions from the millions of small older motorcycles and mopeds in developing countries as well as motorcycle here in America. I have created a universal, inexpensive, hybrid "backpack" that bolts to the back of a variety of different kinds of motorcycles with little-to-no modifications, to provide electric power to the rear wheel. My design works in a manner that is similar to hybrid car technology, charging from a wall outlet or during braking. It is designed for low-speed travel, and assists in higher speeds.
Nanobots are extremely small robots that have several applications, some of which include, early detection of cancer cells, and identification and repairing of damaged cells. This is a research paper that mainly addresses the origins of Nanobots, their advantages, disadvantages, future and the challenges scientists face in building them.
I conducted this experiment to determine which ratio of sodium chloride (NaCl) to calcium chloride (CaCl2) is most cost efficient to use in melting ice. Ice on roadways is very dangerous, causing fatalities and damage to property. Sodium chloride (NaCl) is more readily available and inexpensive but only works on itsâ€™ own down to 20Â°F. Calcium chloride (CaCl2) is more expensive, but it is better for the environment, less corrosive, works faster, and effective to -25Â°F. My data will show which combination is most effective and I will evaluate cost efficiency.
Projectile motion includes many familiar objects; such as bullets, satellites, and planets. However, calculating projectile motion becomes very difficult when there are constantly changing variables. These variables often include elevation, the force of gravity, and the force of air resistance. However, if the projectile's trajectory is broken up into an infinite amount of infinitely small distance intervals, calculating important values becomes easier. By assuming that variables don't change over an infinitely small distance, constant velocity equations may be used to calculate values. It is then possible to plot the trajectory of any projectile in any situation. In my project, I use my method to calculate the initial launch velocity of a satellite. I then also constructed a simulation on MatLab that finds the velocity of any orbiting object (moon, planet, etc). All of this was calculated using a distance interval integral.

What do smelly dirt and water have in common with a generator? The ability to produce power. Watt, you don't believe me? Well, a bacterium called Sheweulium; Shewy for short, digests simple nutrients in the dirt. When Shewy eats dirt, he releases energy like a capacitor giving power to the circuit and he will continue to do so until his food supply runs out. Shewy's food is the organic matter in the dirt, which he helps decompose. The more organic matter the better Shewy grows. The purpose of this investigation is to evaluate different soils and soil thickness to see what are best conditions to generate power.

The purpose of this statement is to see if color and color shade, bright and dark, effects the ability to remember things in a good or bad way. Memory retrieval is the last out of the four memory processes. Retrieval is the process of remembering information and pulling it out from either short-term or long-term memory. Memory retrieval is more effective when information is associated with older information, or is personally meaningful. Information that is more difficult to understand is remembered in a distorted form. It will also acknowledge if color coding and highlighting effects studying off of notes.
Throughout the process of baking, each ingredient goes through a chemical reaction with the other ingredients in the recipe. Cookie ingredients affect the end product throughout each stage of baking. The diameter and height are dependent on flour, butter, and baking time. The texture depends on all of the ingredients, the temperature, and the baking time. During the time in the oven, the Maillard reaction occurs, causing the sugar to react with the eggs and flour, which produces water and browns the cookie, so the cookie is baked, but also stays moist ("Why food browns", n.d.). This project tests the effects that different variations of ingredients and baking time have on diameter, height, and texture of chocolate chip cookies.

Water Leak Sensor is a handy device that can be used around the house, especially if you live in a floodplain (Iowa ,Illinois) or find your basement leaking or give early warning if your sump pump is not working. Today off the shelf simple water leak detectors would cost anywhere from $35 to $60 which consists of water detecting system and a loud buzzer. This simple water leak detectors are helpful only if someone who are within the audible range of the speaker. Smart water leak sensors proposed here not only give audible alarm but it can also send real-time alerts using home wifi network to the mobile phone and costs lot less (approx. $40).
