My name is Graham Mann, I'm a Grade 10 student at Park View Education Centre on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. This will be the third time that I have competed at the Canada-Wide Science Fair, having gone in 2005 and then again in 2006, when I was awarded a silver medal. I am enrolled in the International Baccalaureate program at PVEC, and I am also a member of the badminton and track teams for the school. This past year I played hockey at the Midget AAA level, and am currently a member of the local Tier 1 soccer club. Other interests include sailing, golf and tennis. In the future, I plan to attend university in a science program and pursue a career in some field of science, although I do not know what that will be yet.

Some Like It Hot! Using Thermoelectrics to Recover Waste Heat from a Car Engine
Division:Health Sciences / Automotive
Region:South Shore
City:Lunenburg, NS

Abstract:This project explores the potential for changing waste heat from a combustion engine into useful electrical energy. A prototype module utilizing thermoelectric generators was designed, constructed, and tested. This module demonstrates considerable promise for energy savings and greenhouse gas reduction if adopted widely in motor vehicles.
