Daniel Kim, a junior at Los Alamos Excessive College, positioned third in Environmental Engineering on the 2023 Regeneron Worldwide Science and Engineering Truthful (ISEF) in Dallas, Texas. His venture, Engineered Underwater Car for Ocean Litter Mapping, was considered one of 86 competing on this class.

“In my venture, I engineered an underwater car to gather footage of the ocean, and a machine studying laptop program to investigate the collected footage for ocean trash,” Daniel defined. “Utilizing this instrument, litter in any respect depths of the ocean will be tracked and mapped to help in cleanup efforts sooner or later. I examined my underwater car in native our bodies and water, and validated my machine studying program utilizing a number of hours of open-sourced footage – detecting over 170,000 items of trash off the coast of Japan.”

The ISEF attracts highschool scientists from around the globe. This 12 months’s winners shared practically $9 million in awards.

“ISEF was an expertise not like another,” stated Daniel. “Having the ability to hook up with the highest minds all internationally and make so many new pals actually makes me enthusiastic about what the longer term has for science.”

Along with collaborating in science gala’s, Daniel is a member of the 2023 Stat Champion LAHS Monitor and Subject group. He positioned 2nd within the 300-meter hurdles on the state competitors. He additionally positioned 2nd within the Supercomputing Problem and garnered first place within the New Mexico Junior Academy of Science  Paper Competitors, held in April in Socorro.
