Members got "paws-on" for May's Member Monday with Clifford The Big Red Dog and Canine Companions for Independence!
Members and their little ones experienced Orlando Science Center's newest exhibition "Adventures with Clifford The Big Red Dog" and learned how highly-trained assistance dogs can help children and adults with disabilities.
Mark your calendars for Monday, June 10 from 9 a.m.–10 a.m. for the next Member Monday.
Join our friends from Canine Companions for Independence as we discover our newest exhibition "Adventures with Clifford The Big Red Dog"! Learn how these highly-trained assistance dogs help children and adults with disabilities. Plus, enjoy hands-on activities.
This is a free member-only event. For more information, call 407.514.2000. Reservations are not required.
The 15th annual Dr. Ying Science Competition is in the books and two was the lucky number for Brevard County's Sarah Van Sickle of Satellite High School.
Sarah was in last year's contest when she finished as a runner up, but the additional year of research won her the 2013 competition. She was awarded a trophy, a $5,000 cash scholarship plus $1,000 awards for her science teacher and her school.
Her efforts improved on the design of the antenna, which is based on fractal geometry and receives both UHF and VHF frequencies for less money than the cost of a commercial device. Since broadcast television is an important communications tool, this research could enable everyone to have access to multiple over-the-air transmissions at a fraction of the cost. This research would be especially valuable for those living in remote areas, Third World countries or people in post-disaster areas where cable or satellite transmissions are inaccessible.
