Ryota Ishizuka, as a senior from Greenwich High School (now a freshman at Harvard University), has been selected by the magazine “Popular Science”  (August 2012 issue See clipping.) as a one of its Top Ten High School Inventors. Ryota’s project, “An Organic Thin Film Transistor and Elastic Organic Solar Cell Based Electronic Skin for Biochemical and Tactile Sensing” is our Fair’s First Place winner of the 2012 Dominion Physical Sciences category and the overall category winner for “Engineering: Materials and Bioengineering” at the 2012 Intel International Science & Engineering Fair”. See the CSEF Media Release describing our students’ outstanding award results at the 2012 Intel ISEF. Ishizuka’s research demonstrated flexible Organic Thin Film Transistor pressure sensors powered by reversibly elastic Organic Photovoltaic Cells, which may serve as electronic skin, mimicking tactile sensing for artificial intelligence. See Ryota’s abstract and those of all our Fair’s 2012 Intel ISEF competitors.
