Emerging Innovators: Research Articles Publication

Students at Children's Innovation Center perform investigations into real-life issues and apply their newly acquired knowledge from the Emerging Innovators Program (Research Program) to create and design human-centric solutions. Students write their investigations and solutions in the form of Research Articles.

The Research Articles written by our students are all original and in-depth. By way of publishing the Research Articles, we encourage students to share their original investigations. We hope our Emerging Innovators continue to develop their solutions further and bring these solutions to reality!

Title: Power-lines Fire Terminator

Author: Amita Gowda, Grade 7

Publication Date: 11/03/2018

Abstract: The purpose of this research article is to design an original solution for an observation of an issue. My observation was on the wild-fires in California and the frequent occurrences of it. When these wild-fires meets our power grid, it turns into electrical fires and causes horrific devastation.

With the current extreme weather conditions and drought in California, it is not possible to completely stop wild-fires, but we could minimize the impact by stopping the wild-fires from becoming electrical fires.

I applied the new nature inspired innovation methodology, called Biomimicry, to research biological models and designed a solution called, Power-lines Fire Terminator (PFT) that would help utility companies to take intelligent and swift actions proactively and avoid future devastation.
