Carey Senior to Compete in International Science Competition

Maira Khan, a senior at H. Frank Carey, was selected as a finalist to compete at the International Sustainable World Engineering Energy Environment Project Olympiad in Houston, Texas in May.
ISWEEEP seeks to bring together the world’s best and brightest high school science, technology, engineering and technology-focused students in a collaborative and engaging environment. This year, hundreds of students from more than 70 countries will present their projects geared at improving the world’s environment, preserving Earth’s natural resources and establishing medical breakthroughs.  
Maira’s project, “Optimization of a Photovoltaic Electrolyzer System via Novel Power Loss Modeling and Wastewater Decontamination” focuses on creating a more efficient technique to harness the sun’s energy with the added benefit of purifying wastewater in one system. She will be judged in five categories: originality, scientific method, analysis, the project’s benefit to society and presentation.
The H. Frank Carey family is extremely proud of Maira and wishes her the best of luck in Houston. Congratulations to Maira, her family and research teachers Mr. Charles Bewick and Mrs. Antonia Healy on this outstanding honor and opportunity.
