Friday Night Lecture: Cancelled due to Snow

  • PSU Cramer Hall 53 1721 Southwest Broadway Portland, OR, 97201 (map)

Regretfully we have had to cancel Mr. Palani's talk due to snow and will be rescheduling.

Speaker Harish Palani of Sunset High School, Portland, will present his project “Quakify” which won the second prize at the the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF). 

The goal of the project was to design a low-cost early warning system (Quakify) to provide adequate warning prior to significant earthquake shaking. Harnessing the power of MEMS accelerometer technology to enable crowdsourced data collection and analysis in the cloud, the system is characterized by a three-step process: (1) rapid detection, (2) real-time analysis, and (3) timely notification.
