CWSF 2017 - Regina, Saskatchewan

Print/Download as PDF

A senior at the Prince of Wales Secondary School, I am elated but also a bit sad to have my first but also my last CWSF this year; but I am sure of one thing: I will continue to involve myself in science as I had done in my years at high school: I will continue to propagate existing knowledge the same way as I founded my computer science club; I will continue to search for new knowledge with researches similar to the one I had done this summer at SBU for my CWSF project; and I will continue to enjoy myself as I marry solutions from completely unrelated fields to solve demanding problems. Exist in a suffocating world where carbon dioxide approaches its highest value in 650,000 years. Energy consumption is lavish. However, with novel materials, I aspire to make greener energy more available, not less. I built my first bridge with this CWSF project and I plan to do the same for the years to come; I will be going to Columbia Engineering this fall and I can't wait to become an innovator who not only searches for truths, but apply them to the real world.

Graphene Oxide Enhanced Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:Vancouver, BC
School:Prince of Wales Secondary
Abstract:Graphene oxide (GO) thin films were coated onto Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell's polymer membrane using LB Method in hopes of improving fuel cell performance. Polarization curves were collected and a maximum performance enhancement of 81% in open-air condition was discovered. The improvement was attributed to the co-catalyzing effects of GO. An increase in fuel cell durability was also discovered.
