 Title: Power-lines Fire Terminator

Author: Amita Gowda, Grade 7

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.
