Wave Power Conversion
Purpose: To create a carbon negative system by using renewable wave energy to power CO2 air cleanup.
Method: Combine wave power conversion technologies with an algae bioreactor.
Benefit: Harness less used renewable wave energy and clean CO2 out of the atmosphere.
Takeaway: Alternative Energy Systems, Bio-Systems, Environmental Engineering, Hardware Engineering, Oceanography, R&D Techniques
Members: Brandon Schrank (Sr), Dae Han (Sr), Jenny Nguyen (Jr), Owen Chen (Jr), Rishi Prasadha (Jr)
Gain Skills as a Student & Professional
From working on this project, members will gain knowledge and skills while performing R&D in the fields of Alternative Energy, Oceanography, and Algae Systems. They will also learn methods to effectively create experiments, conduct testing, and analyze data of different types. Students will also be exposed to simulation and design programs such as AutoCAD or Aspen. Along the way, all members will have valuable practice with communication, critical thinking, teamwork, and problem solving skills.
