For the second year in a row Maharishi School student Raph Burne was selected to represent Iowa at the National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) in San Diego.
At the state competition, students present their research in front of judges and an audience of 300 scientists, teachers, and students. The top five go on to represent Iowa at the National JSHS.
His project, "Building Materials of the Future: Honeycomb Cardboard," focused on replacement materials for traditional building materials. "Recycled honeycomb cardboard is a more effective heat and sound insulator
than traditional materials," he says. To conduct his research he built giant model rooms.
His current research is a further extension of the research he presented in 2010, using recycled rubber and paper as alternative insulation materials.
Approximately 100 adult leaders, high school teachers, university faculty, ranking military guests, and others attended the national symposium, which encourages the future generation of scientists and engineers and celebrates student achievement in the sciences.
