Raph Burne Wins at National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium

Maharishi School Junior, Raph Burne, just returned from the National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) in Bethesda, MD, on May 2. Burne upheld his winning record and won Honorable Mention for his poster presentation.

"The event was outstanding, a fantastic experience," said Burne. "I toured Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab and met with civilian and military scientists. The discussions, friendships, and contacts made were invaluable."

Burne's project, entitled "Sustainable Insulation and Conservation: Keeping Heat In and Sound Out," used recycled car tires mixed with recycled paper to create an effective heat and sound insulation. “Improving energy efficiency in buildings shrinks heating bills and reduces the consumption of fossil fuels, helping us become more carbon neutral," Burne reasoned. "As an added benefit, this results in a quieter environment inside the building. ”

To participate in the National Symposium on Science and Humanities, students first submit a written research paper. Judges select the top 18 projects to give power point presentations and answer questions at the Iowa Symposium. Burne placed third at the Iowa Symposium.

The Junior Science and Humanities Symposium, sponsored by US Army, Naval, and Air Force Research Offices, gives students an opportunity to hear their peers present research. Out of 8000 students that applied, 240 students were invited to attend.
