Englewood High School SmartLab Students Win Competition

Written by Bill Laurienti

Congratulations to Englewood High School SmartLab students, Davida Martinez and Josh Yohe!

Davida and Josh won first place in the School Photovoltaic Design Project Competition held at the 40th Annual IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference.

Their winning design was a solar-powered cooler that keeps food cool without ice—an innovative solution that’s perfect for camping, boating, hiking, and fishing.
