Indiana Math and Science Academy North (Indianapolis, IN) student, Taiwo Olawore, has qualified as a finalist for the GENIUS Olympiad (Global Environmental Issues Olympiad – An international high school project competition) from Concept Schools Science and Engineering Fair (CONSEF).
His project is about Dye Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSC). He is trying to contribute to the study of sustainable energy sources with DSSC, which is more eco-friendly and cheaper, for a better environment.
