Congratulations to Akshay!

Akshay Padala, an eighth grader, top 300 Broadcom MASTERS in the 2017 Broadcom MASTERS®, a program of Society for Science & the Public. This honor places him among a select group of 300 MASTERS named from more than 6,000 nominees throughout the United States. He is one among three kids from Arkansas whose science fair project was selected for the honor.

His project, “Making Combat Vehicles Safer Against Blasts: Thermal Conductivity Of Metal Foams”, focused on ways to improve the safety of US Service men against bomb blasts. He completed this project at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock under the guidance of Dr. Pidugu. He had found that the thermal conductivity of the aluminum foams was significantly lower than the aluminum metal. Given their finding of significantly lower thermal conductivity in aluminum foam, they could be used in components of combat vehicles to provide less thermal conductivity and more shock absorption. His project had received first place at CARSEF and earned a nomination to the Broadcom competition.
