1.0    Technical Innovation Description

1.1    Idea: Methanol Fuel Cycle

       The main goal of the Global Challenge this year is “to create new science, technology, engineering,

mathematics and business solutions that address ‗Global Climate Change and the Future of Energy‘. After

much deliberation, we knew if we wanted to achieve this goal, we‘d need a product that is easily renewable.

Thus the idea of the Methanol Fuel Cycle was formed. With its ability to and create Carbon Monoxide and then

create a useable fuel in Methanol it seemed like a solid idea.


       The Methanol Fuel Cycle is:


           1. Methanol powered combustion engine creates Carbon Dioxide

           2. Carbon Dioxide is captured, and split into CO and O2

           3. O2 is released; CO is stored and offloaded at the methanol station

           4. Methanol Fuel is on loaded at the methanol station.


       The two main concepts of the Methanol Fuel Cycle are the emerging, radical idea of CO2 cell splitting

and the well known existing concept of synthetic fuel production by the Fischer-Tropsch process. This idea is

not completely new, but the way that we are applying is—commercially, this process is not viable enough to be

mass produced since the CO2 splitter is too ―thermally demanding‖ (Breedlove et al. 578)

       The newest and most innovative component in the Methanol Fuel Cycle is a device that is composed of

a semiconductor with two thin layers of catalysts that captures sunlight energy converts that energy into

electrical energy and separates Carbon Dioxide into Carbon Monoxide and Oxygen. This device is pictured on

our cover page.

       This CO2 splitting device works in a three-step process that begins with the semiconductor pulling in

solar energy photons. The photon energy is then converted into electrical energy by the semiconductor. The
                                                                                                               4

electrical energy, in turn, powers the catalysts to split CO2 into Carbon Monoxide on one side of the device and

Oxygen on the other.

       The oxygen is released into the air and the highly sought after Carbon Monoxide captured to be recycled

to make other products. ―Millions of pounds of it are used each year to manufacture chemicals including

detergents and plastics‖ (―Device‖). Carbon Monoxide could also be converted into liquid fuel, which is the

methanol in our fuel cycle that powers a methanol combustion engine. The CO is offloaded at the Methanol

Fuel Station.




       Figure 2. Diagram of Methanol Fuel Cycle using the CO2 splitter and the Fischer-Tropsch process


       As an automobile engine burns the methanol fuel, CO2 is released and captured, and the whole process

starts over and continues to produce a source of renewable energy.
                                                                                                                   5

1.2    How does this idea reduce Global Warming?

       Along with land use change and solar variation, one of the major contributions to global warming and

other environmental changes is greenhouse gas emissions and the increase of it in our earth‘s atmosphere

(―Science FAQs‖). Large stationary sources such as power plants are responsible for more than half of the

emissions, whereas our transportation contributes to a third (―Basic Information‖).


       In addition, the achievement of sustainable resources is sorely needed, as our planet‘s resources are

limited and finite and humans use these resources everyday, which is where the problems accumulate.

Especially today, we could see the effects of our past acts, such as rising gas prices due to limited amounts of

current energy sources and increases in greenhouse gasses as the American living standard spreads to under-

developed nations.


       Our Methanol Fuel Cycle addresses these problems and offers solutions. As gasoline becomes

economically competitive, there‘s a demand for a renewable fuel resource; and the CO could be converted into

liquid methanol fuel, thus reducing the need for gasoline. Sunlight as the initiating power presents an

alternative to requiring external power to drive the reaction, which lessens the reliance on other forms of power

such as battery power, which is ultimately created via power plants (which, as previously mentioned, are

responsible for more than half of greenhouse gas emissions), among others.


       The Methanol Fuel Cycle takes negative resources (i.e. pollution, CO2) and turns them into positive,

renewable capital, such as liquid methanol that could be used to power cars or produce household products. By

using sunlight to split the CO2, we save fuel and other natural resources; save money; and most importantly,

reduce greenhouse gases.
                                                                                                                   6




1.3      CO2 Splitting




                          Figure 3. Graphic depicting steps in solar splitting of CO2. (―Device‖)

         Current research is ongoing on the CO2 Semiconductor Splitting device at the University of California,

San Diego. The process takes on three steps: the capture of sunlight by a gallium phosphide semiconductor; the

energy converted into electrical energy; which in turns power the two catalysts made of nickel clusters to split

the CO2 atoms into carbon monoxide on one side and oxygen on the other. The carbon monoxide is then

converted into synthetic methanol fuel using the well known Fischer-Tropsch process.


1.4      The Fischer-Tropsch Process


         In the 1920s, the Fischer-Tropsch process was invented for the creation of synthetic fuel. This process

is well known. The chemical equation that conveys this process is, according to FischerTropsch.org:


      1. Synthesis gas formation: CHn + O2 → 1/2 nH2 + CO
                                                                        7

              a. Old hydrocarbon + Oxygen → Syngas

      2. Fischer-Tropsch reaction: 2n H2 + CO → - (CH2 -) n - + H2O

              a. Syngas → New hydrocarbon + water

      3. Refining: - (CH2 -) n - → Fuels, lubricants, etc.

              a. New hydrocarbon → Fuels, lubricants, chemicals, etc.


** → catalysts

(Schubert).

                                  Figure 7. FT Fuel Chain (Morano 5).




Figure 8. Full life-cycle of GHG emissions for FT and Petroleum Diesel Scenarios in an SUV (Morano vii)
                                                                                                                   10

       As Figures 4-8 show, using the Fischer-Tropsch process in our Methanol Fuel Cycle will not have a total

of GHG emissions as zero. But in any case, the amount is reduced.

       GHG emissions will occur during transportation/distribution, conversion/refining, and end use

combustion. This is because the distribution process oftentimes requires tankers or trucks, each with different

amounts of airborne emissions (Figure 7 & 8). Figure 7 also shows that during the refining and blending

process, there will also be waterborne emissions. All the scenarios as illustrated in Figure 8 show that lots of

GHGs are also emitted during the end use combustion.

       With the Methanol Fuel Cycle, we will be extracting CO2, not re-emitting, and thus eventually reducing

the number during extraction to zero. The only potential emission with the Methanol Fuel Cycle will be during

the distribution and the end use combustion.
                                                                                                                   11

1.6     Feasibility

       Right now, the idea of splitting CO2 into Oxygen and Carbon Monoxide is still very new and puzzling.

Researchers at UCSD (where the idea originated) are still trying to discover more science and better pieces to

perfect the splitter.

       ―Choosing the right semiconductor is also critical to making carbon dioxide splitting practical‖

(―Device‖). It‘s critical because it‘s the main piece of the product: it captures the energy from the sun and

converts it into electrical energy that will split the CO2. Initially, the UCSD researchers, Kubiak and Sathrum,

used silicon as the material for the semiconductor, because it was a well-studied material.

       The semiconductor consists of bands of energy in which electrons are confined to. The sunlight causes

electrons to leap from one band to another, which generates the energy. The energy difference between these

bands, otherwise called the band gap, is what determines how much solar energy is received and how much

could be converted into electrical energy (―Device‖).

       Kubiak and Sathrum, however, have decided that silicon is not strong enough to supply enough energy.

The sunlight conversion that silicon powers supplies only half of the energy needed to split the CO2 cells. The

researchers are now building a new semiconductor that uses gallium phosphide—which has ―twice the band gap

of silicon and absorbs more energetic visible light‖—meaning that the researchers believe that it will provide

enough energy for the catalysts to split the carbon dioxide (―Device‖).

        The researchers have developed the catalysts using three nickel clusters. They feel that using nickel is an

ideal as well as effective step.
                                                                                                                    12




    Figure 7. A semiconductor photoelectrochemical system for the splitting of CO2 (Breedlove et al. 583).

       The equation above represents the breakdown of CO2 into carbon monoxide and oxygen. The symbols

below the arrow are the catalysts used in this process. The main function of a catalyst is to lower the activation

energy of a reaction. This means that less energy is required to split the carbon dioxide into its components. The

gallium phosphide part of the catalyst (GaP) is the compound from which electrons are plated off and moved

into the Ni3P6. When a loose electron is moved into this part of the catalyst, the compound releases an electron

and combines with CO2 to produce CO and an oxygen anion. The platinum (Pt) is the part of the catalyst that

uses the energy of the sun to create a photo generated hole (h+) which reacts with oxygen anions in the air to

produce oxygen gas. The oxygen anions can be found naturally and are also given off as a by-product of the

CO2 splitting reaction. Realistically the products of the reaction are CO and O- but after the O- reacts with the

h+, it becomes O2.
                                                                                                                   13

       The device still has many parts that will need to be further researched, thus it will not be commercially

feasible. Also, the researchers will need to find a way to solve the problem that the device is very energy

intensive. At this point, the idea of splitting CO2 seems very expensive, and that is one of the reasons the device

is not available to the public yet. Sathrum says, ―Quite a bit of work has been done on each piece, but it takes

more science to mesh them all together. Bringing all the pieces together is the part of the problem we are

focused on‖ (―Device‖).
                                                                                                                  14

2.0    Key Personnel

       For any project to succeed, teamwork and mutual cooperation are very important factors. Team

Awesome fortunately consists of three students and one mentor from different backgrounds who also have

different goals in life. But these differences did not hinder our work by any means, but rather influenced,

enhanced, and supplemented the project.

       All students are from the US, but from different states: Ivana Cheong lives 25 minutes away from

Seattle, Andrew Tramposch is near the Chicago area, and Pierre Winter lives near San Diego.

       Our team did not have a fixed structure of roles. We would primarily assign tasks to each other during

the weekly meetings, but this by no means was a system where one team member solely bore the responsibility

for his/her own assignment. Instead, we had enough selflessness to help each other when in need, as in times

when we are too busy with our school and extracurricular activities. Overall, each team member complemented

one another, and we all assisted each other as we keep our eyes on the main goal—completing the project with

as much scientific and mathematical knowledge as possible, with a touch of refined finesse.

       Last but not least, we‘d like to thank Janet Vocaire-Tramposch, our patient, brilliant mentor, using the

many languages that are involved in our lives: Thank you very much! ¡Muchas gracias! Merci beaucoup! 谢谢!

Vielen Dank! Terima kasih banyak! Jan‘s provided our communication methods and also protects us from being

too chaotic. With a Bachelor‘s of Science degree in Electrical Engineering, she‘s given us professional expertise

as well as a sense of adult control that we students often lack in times of academic panic.
                                                                                                                     15

2.1    Biographies

                               Ivana Cheong currently resides in Everett, Washington and attends Kamiak High

                               School at the nearby town of Mukilteo, Washington. Ivana comes from a more

                               literary background, so her biggest strengths are not in math or science, but to the

                               Global Challenge Award, her main contributions are her researching, managing,

                               and organizing skills. In her dedication to GCA, she‘s managed time to work on

                               the project. She attends the meetings regularly as well as follows up on occasion
      Ivana Cheong
       Kamiak HS               with team members throughout the week, outside of the meetings.
      Mukilteo, WA


       Ivana feels that her lack of science and mathematical expertise are her biggest undoing and the factor

that she‘s most embarrassed of. Her past science and math courses have been somewhat generic, and that‘s

because she didn‘t realize an opportunity when it presented itself to her in the seventh grade. As a result, she

doesn‘t have any advanced science and math classes, except for Advanced Geometry in tenth grade—and that‘s

not really anything, since a lot of the students in that class were freshman as well.

       When asked what she has learned about herself as an individual through GCA, Ivana says:

               I feel that if I put discipline and passion into whatever it is I‘m doing, I will finish through it

               successfully and without too much pain. Environmental science is easier than I thought it would

               be, and that‘s because I‘ve put myself into and have committed myself to it.

       Ivana Cheong is currently a full-time freshman at Shoreline Community College.
                                                                                                                  16

                              Pierre Winter currently resides in ___ and is a senior at Carlsbad High School in

                              Carlsbad, California. His main contributions to GCA are his expertise on math

                              and science. Upon getting to know each other, the members of Team Awesome

                              voted him as the technical, scientific group member and he‘s lived up to the title.

                              As a senior, he‘s been bombarded with the college process, such as applications

                              and statements, so that has hindered him from attending a few meetings. But
      Pierre Winter
      Carlsbad HS             during the week, he‘d follow up on the work through e-mails.
      Carlsbad, CA


       Through his past courses in high school, Pierre‘s able to understand and help the rest of the team with

STEM explorations or other difficult materials that the team needs to research. His outstanding list of classes

includes: Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus AB; along with Biology, Physics, Chemistry, and

AP Chemistry.

       Through GCA, Pierre has learned a few things about himself:

                By working in a Global Challenge team, I have learned that I was able to really understand and

                explain technical, complex ideas in a simple manner. I also learned that communication is

                important.
                                                                                                                    17



                              Andrew Tramposch currently lives in Naperville, Illinois, and attends Naperville

                              North High School. He regularly attends team meetings as well as completes his

                              assignment in time and crafted amazingly. He‘s responsible for giving the team

                              innovative ideas for our project, such as our first tentative idea—saltwater energy.

                              Like every other team member, he‘s had to work hard in maintaining his role and

                              communication with the team, as he‘s involved with many other time-consuming

                              extracurricular activities along with school, such as lacrosse.
    Naperville, IL



       Andrew has been very passionate about solving global warming, being an avid snowboarder. Using his

past experience, he‘s given a personal approach to the team project; and also, a lot of expertise in science. His

previous high school courses include chemistry, biology, dynamic earth systems, and physics. According to

Andrew, these courses have helped to give him an extensive understanding of current issues in climate change

and the steps needed to solve them.

       To answer the question ―What did you learn about your individual strengths through this project?‖

Andrew comments:

               Honestly, they aren‘t as strong as I think they are. They can be even stronger, and I need to work

               on making them stronger.
                                                                                                                   18

2.2    International Communications

       Oftentimes, the power and influence in working with a diverse group of people is underestimated. GCA

has generously given students the opportunity to experience working and learning with members from all over

the world.

       Just because none of our members are currently from outside of the US, our experience was no different.

We all have different lives, different interests, and different goals. As a result, we all have different opinions on

how it feels to work as an international team, but essentially, we all agree that it was a rewarding experience.


               I love it so much. One of my goals in life is to be as cultured and as well-rounded as possible.

               Working with strangers, essentially, is a test of your will and your flexibility to learn new things,

               adapt, and not be so prideful. I‘ve found that it‘s advantageous to do this sort of project with

               different opinions: each team member is able to provide new knowledge and new light to the

               project that I otherwise might have missed if I were to do this by myself. —Ivana Cheong


               By working in an international team, I have learned that there are people everywhere around the

               world who are dedicated and willing to help the Earth. I also learned that communication is extra

               important, especially in dealing with international members. —Pierre Winter


               It‘s not very easy. Long distance communication without ever actually meeting the people is

               very tricky, and without communication this team would not have functioned at all. There would

4.0    Appendix

4.1.1 Choosing Internet Telecommunications

       The team had many discussions on which method of communication will benefit our project the most.

After many back-and-forth comments, our mentor Jan introduced us to GoToMeeting, an online

chat/conference service. We all agreed that this method was the best for the team, since we would be able to see

each other‘s screens and edit documents together as well. This is vital to our team, since internet

communication comes with many limitations, such as different systems and services. This way, everyone could

see the same things and understand better.

4.1.2 Individual Contributions to Maintain Communication

       As a team, we were all consciously aware that without diligence to maintain communication, the project

will not work. We all tried our very best to attend all the meetings regularly as scheduled. But sometimes,

circumstances do not allow and we did not let this hinder our work. Instead, we kept on going and kept others

up-to-date if one of our team members did not make it to a meeting, usually by emails.

4.1.3 Decision-making Process

       The team makes decisions like any other team should: very effectively and fair. Prior to our meetings,

we‘d have an agenda to some extent that includes some ideas on what should be discussed that meeting. Every

member contributes his/her own ideas. We have a caucus and then a basic voting on the ideas.
                                                                                                               21

4.1.4 Most Challenging Aspect

       One of our team members, Shanice, did not have internet connection on the weekends. Though this

brought fear that our communication would be hindered somewhat, we worked through it and decided that we

could work with Shanice one-on-one and as a team through emails and our e-Folio.

       Shanice felt reluctant to continue because of the internet problems. Nina Cicero then confirmed to us by

e-mail that Shanice is withdrawing from the challenge. Working with only three team members could‘ve been a

setback, but we made it work.

4.2.1 Agenda

      01/28/2008: Team is matched

      01/28/2008—02/07/2008: Getting to know team members and mentor; decided name and methods of

       communication

      02/07/2008—04/30/2008: Deciding on project idea (Methanol Fuel Cycle); research and explorations of

       Methanol Fuel Cycle; continuous process of researching and drafting Technical Innovation Plan

Dear Shanice, Ivana, Pierre and Andrew:

I hope that you are all doing well! You had all indicated that you wanted to be in an International Team. I have
matched you all together. You should email/Skype/instant message each other to decide on a name for your
International Team and then we will set you up in e-folio as a team. You DO NO need to use Globenet.

Hi, All:

How are you all? I'm Ivana. Time is getting really tight and I hope to receive a response from you all soon, so
we could get to work as soon as possible.

Thanks,

I have MSN and AIM. I have a Yahoo! email, but not the messenger, so I don't know if there's an online one...
As far as names go, Andrew already has a shirt... Team Awesome... I mean, I'm pretty okay with that.

Ooh which reminds me, we really should not dwell on this much, because we need to go ahead and get an e-
folio from Nina.

Thanks all!

anyone want to have someone assign us a mentor instead?

So could you e-mail Nina with that? Thanks.

Hi Team Awesome -

I was poking around in your eFolio. I'm new at this, so I'm going to need your help.
                                                                                                             23

I did put a goal our there, and hope you will respond to it within the eFolio?

Please, respond to this email to let me know you are out there!

Dear Team Awesome:

I hope that you are all doing well.

I‘m not sure if your teammate Shanice contacted you or not. She is withdrawing from the competition because
she has limited internet access and therefore did not think she could fully contribute to the team.

Please let me know if you have any questions or want to meet on Skype or using the team teleconference tool:

http://www.globalchallengeaward.org/team_tools/teleconference.html

Also, a reminder that as soon as you have decided on your idea for the Technical Innovation Plan, you should
submit it to the patent office:

http://www.globalchallengeaward.org/team_tools/patentoffice.html

You can email or Skype me with any questions!

Cheers,
Nina

      Ivana Cheong (Private): Hello!
      Ivana Cheong (Private): got it
      Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): i'm going to share my screen
      Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): I see what you meant - I could not see your submission either
      Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): can you see my screen?
      Ivana Cheong (Private): Yes, because it says next to Draft: Advisors do not see it yet.
      Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): yes
      Ivana Cheong (Private): Yes, I can see your screen.
      Ivana Cheong (Private): How do I do that
      Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): let me give you the
      Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): "presenter" role
      Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): ok you are presenter
      Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): I see your screen
      Ivana Cheong (Private): Do you see my screen>
      Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): yes
                                                                                                      29

Ivana Cheong (Private): Your screen is now gone, haha.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): i see your mouse too
Ivana Cheong (Private): Do people have to take turns presenting, I assume>
Ivana Cheong (Private): ?*
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): yes i think - there is a "give keyboard" button up there but I have not
been able to figure out what it does yet? want to try
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): ??
Ivana Cheong (Private): Yeah, alright.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): fix that first
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): did you connect it to the goal?
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): wahoo!
Ivana Cheong (Private): Um, no, darn.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): 1.1

Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): let me see if I can see your work now
Ivana Cheong (Private): Kay.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): nope
Ivana Cheong (Private): Yeah, what? Let me try again.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): I wonder if you have to select someone in the advisors list
Ivana Cheong (Private): Perhaps.
Ivana Cheong (Private): Alright, try now.
Ivana Cheong (Private): There.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): success!
Ivana Cheong (Private): Where's the picture? =]
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): u can't see it either huh?
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): my computer has been acting funny with pictures.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): see if you can see it on your screen
Ivana Cheong (Private): Nope. I think it's because maybe your IMG URL is from C:\whatever. So I put
mine online and used the link on my HTML.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): ok so I have some homework to do.
Ivana Cheong (Private): =]
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): I can fix that from my home computer
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): so what do you think?
Ivana Cheong (Private): I put mine on tinypic.com, an online server sort of thing.
Ivana Cheong (Private): This is good.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): tinypic
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): ok i'll try it.
Ivana Cheong (Private): Great,
Ivana Cheong (Private): keyboard now.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): good let's try
Ivana Cheong (Private): Er. I clicked all.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): oh!
Ivana Cheong (Private): Nothing happened.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): try again
Ivana Cheong (Private): What's supposed to show?
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): it showed 'you may now take control of the keyboard" but i"m not
sure how to
                                                                                                          30

Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): let me be presenter maybe you will see how to "take control of the
keyboard"
Ivana Cheong (Private): Uh, yeah, that did not show on my screen.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): did you see anything
Ivana Cheong (Private): Yeah, it showed.
Ivana Cheong (Private): I don't know what that means.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): what can you do?
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): me either
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): so it looks like if I move my mouse you are out of control
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): let's try again
Ivana Cheong (Private): Okay.
Ivana Cheong (Private): I think so too.
Ivana Cheong (Private): I'm on the same screen.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): anything>
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): ??
Ivana Cheong (Private): Nope. I still have control.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): what do you mean?
Ivana Cheong (Private): I saw that window that said I had control, but I don't know how to activate it.
Ivana Cheong (Private): I mean, I could still move around.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): on your screen, right?
Ivana Cheong (Private): Um yes
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): i was thinking you would control my mouse
Ivana Cheong (Private): Well, I thought so too. Let me try again.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): that worked!
Ivana Cheong (Private): Yay, I figured out how to do it, haha. I click on your window.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): how did you do that
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): whichone?
Ivana Cheong (Private): The viewing of your screen one.
Ivana Cheong (Private): There we go.

Ivana Cheong (Private): Kay...
Ivana Cheong (Private): Can you give me control again?
Ivana Cheong (Private): Yeah, that's so great.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): Let‘s see if you can type in my document
Okay, yay!
[Simultaneous document edit] That‘s pretty good
                            So if we want to edit documents together, we can!
                            Let‘s see if you can type in my document
                            Okay, yay!
                            That‘s pretty good

                            I think that all the functions Iknow about
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): we can figure the rest out
Ivana Cheong (Private): I thought for a bit it magically appeared.
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): yes, that's me, majician.
Ivana Cheong (Private): Haha
Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): ok maybe no
                                                                                                            31

      Jan Tramposch (to Ivana Cheong): what happened?
      Ivana Cheong (Private): Well, for some reason, I thought you were Andrew, cause it said, I need to take
      my Mom out to dinner. Haha, I assumed!

      Ivana Cheong (Private): It's expensive.
      Ivana Cheong (Private): Was there a reason that we couldn't do weekdays?

Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): The first one is pretty easy too, if we all agree on the
product.
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): k
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): this telecom can be tricky!
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Should we work on the 3rd part right now?

Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): good ideas
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): something else?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): and email and efolio
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Well, the contributions.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): good
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): We could take that from the Snapshots, plus any additional
info that you'd like to divulge right now?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): shanice isnt here is she?
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Guess not, but here's me crossin' fingers.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): i think we can use the rules of the road for Level 2 criteria
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ya
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): no shanice yet
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): she may be late
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): What did you say we're using the Rules of the Road for?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): How about the Level 3 criteria
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ok so lets work on the Evidence of Global Communications
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): for the level 2 criteria
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Evidence? Isn't that level 3?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): we have the transcripts of our gotomeeting
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): yes level3
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Okay, yeah.

Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): level 2 - we have our rules of the road

Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): One of those should include Shanice though, I guess.
                                                                                                   42

Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): correct
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I don't think it's fake. I mean, the snow here is WA shows up
at the strangest times.
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): lol
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): plus we need to document some of the other emails,
because she has limited computer access
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Yup.
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): That's not very hard.
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): she sent her team picture
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): So should snapshots be included?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I would call that :most challenging aspect so far
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): yes I think that is one of the ways we communicated
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ya same
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Okay, we'd have more than 5 pages, I suppose. Unless the
document is columned.
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): The transcripts can be columned to fit.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): hm... probably we need to look at last years submittals.
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Yeah...
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): do they have examples?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): yes they are on the gc website
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): What's it under?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): maybe we should look at the TIP ones
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): there are no tip ones... this is the first year for tip
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): oh
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I'll go there so you can see
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): k
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I'm guessing you could look at any of the portfolios and
check for a transcript.
Andrew Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): electricity made possible by salt water
Andrew Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): my vote
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ya that could work
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I'm not sure ... I'll look around and send out a link
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): ok back to the rub
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): so should we all work on it right now ?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): the third part
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Okay, I clicked on one
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): so -- there needs to be writeup on how we accomplished
Evidence of GC?
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): And basically the pasted their schedules in.
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): they*
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): huh?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): give screen to ivana
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): i think
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I think
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Wokie.
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): So
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): nice you have vista too
Andrew Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): booooo
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): haha
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I don't have Vista...
                                                                                                  43

Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): rly?
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Yup.
Andrew Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): i think she just has the new word
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): It's just Word 2007
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): oh its almost exact same
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): So do you see how it's kind of a schedule? It could be their
threads...
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): i think you are correct
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I'm not sure if I'm deciphering this right though...
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): For e-mails, I guess they just put e-mails.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): i think so
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): so that's the Proof
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): good
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): We could maybe hold off on this until we have more? Or we
could ummm start now and add as it goes on...
Andrew Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): we could use our chat logs as proof
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ya we should document every meeting and main points or
tasks from the meeting
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I think there needs to be a general write-up and then add

Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I didn't want to change the meeting time "again"
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): oh ya thx for that
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Yeah, it's cool.
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): well i found out a little about saltwater energy and it could
work
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): really?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): so here are the STEM that deal with it
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ya i have websites about it
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Do you know why Andew said it's not the best?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ya what was wrong?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): something like the energy to cause the split was greater
                                                                                                    54

about equal the energy you get out
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Um...
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ya i saw a little bit on that
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): what did you think?
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Yeah, excuse me, but I have no idea what that means...=]
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): but we can work on it and explore a little more
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): what are you thinking?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): and can you explain a little to Ivana who was busy with
the "other stuff"?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): here ill open websites
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I'm not good with science. Or cars.
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): this is waht andrew is saying
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Well, makes more sense now.
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Could you send the links to me later?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): sure
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Kay, kool.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): current prices of electricity are not likely to go down
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Yup.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): post the links to the "work section".
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ok
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): once ignited?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ya hydrogen gas burns in air
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): is it the cost to start or maintain the reaction that is so
high?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): to start
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): how do you measure how much to start?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): the energy u need to break up water into atoms is a lot
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): and you have to do that all along?
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I thought that was the case.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): so that's what is meant by start?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): well once it is seperated and you light it, it keep burning
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): so it becomes self separating?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): no, you seperate it and use the hydrogen to keep a fire lit
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): ok
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): but im not sure on all aspects of it
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): so the cost to sep the hydrogen is more than the cost of the
resultant fuel
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): kinda
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): right - I'll have Andrew write something up about why the
idea currently is not viable
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): the cost of energy to seperate molecules is more than energy
released by the burning hydrogen
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): so we can eith close off that idea or go further
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): And I think it was in the NYTimes article, in a nutshell, the
cost to produce is higher than the value itself.
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I think...
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): see what happens when you don't attend??? lol
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): What?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): let's assign a lot fo stuff to Andrew!
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Haha...
                                                                                                     55

Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): lol
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): anyway here was my other assignement
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): just kidding... kinda
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Well, okay, Pierre, from what you know...
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Should we go forward with this or not?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): i think so unless you have an idea
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): yes, I do
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): what is it?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): andrew has another one, too, but I'm less sure about that
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): (I'm probably the last person to have an idea)
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): yes lets look at that
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): IVANA!
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): this is the redone electromagnetism one
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): its on efolio too
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I'm into this, but don't know how to like, start and er I don't
know... haha
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): why would u be the last!!
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I don't have enough knowledge to come up with radical stuff
haha
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): its not knowledge its imagination
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Eh yeah...
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): that too...lolo
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): =]
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): too true a way of looking at something that is already there
and imagining it differently
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): i like it Pierre
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): well here it is
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): i added the questions in bold font
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): It seems easier to understand, so that's good for you.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): did you poast it for review?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): yes
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): good - that is complete then, pending any additional
feedback!
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): wahoo!
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ok that was my job
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): What are we supposed to give feedback on?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): yes, but it's still great to work with people who do their job
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): not everyone does
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): as you know!!!
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): true
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Yeah...
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ok im gonna switch back to you jan
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): ok
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): ivana why don't you give us a tour of your thoughts on
your work?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): here's the screen
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Er ok...
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Haha too many spelling errors
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): From all the chat logs, probably...
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Alright, so
                                                                                                    56

Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): My initial question was that I don't which formatiing to do.
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): How long/how detailed, etc.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): what do you think Pierre?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): i think you should include all possible
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Okay
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): agree
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): but it will work fine without everything im sure
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): As you can see, it's now at 23 pages and counting
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I think that's ok
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): we could do a summary at the top, and then just include
everything following.
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ya
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Okay, that's kind of what I did.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I like it

Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): should i change the fonts so they're all the same?
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): or not?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): yes, maybe an "index" at the top?
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Yeah, I'll put that.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): no it think it's more authenic with the different fonts and
colors
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Because this will go into an Appendix section I think.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): yes, that might work well
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Okay then.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): Andrew and I shared a private joke that we were
wondering if Californians might be flakey
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): And that's all so far.
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Haha
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): yes
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): but it turns out that Andrew is the one who looks flakey!
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): funny

Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Yeah
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): h/o
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): ok yr presenter
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Ooh new mail
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Okay
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): confusion!
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I know!
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ur not weird
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Then I sent her another email as a response
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Yeah, I am. Haha
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I have reached out to here again
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): but no answer
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): No not that one
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Kay its not here
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I wanted to chat with her to make sure she was plugged in
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Yeah.
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): i got that enail too
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Haha yeahhh
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): email
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): We haven't decided...?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): cool
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): that's great
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): OMG where is it?
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Whoop. Not that one.
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I can't find it.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): maybe she was offended when I could not reach her via
email.
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I don't know.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): and asked for help to find another team member
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): that might offend me, too
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Basically, when she told me she was reluctant, I said
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I sent an email later on asking if she had decided
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): to continue or not
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): and....
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): No replies as of today
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): ok
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Maybe I didn't even send the email
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ok we need to decide what to do for next week
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Im just imagining everything
                                                                                                      61

Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): Pierre can you reach out the Shanice and reassure her?
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): World flatteners?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I'll ask Andrew to do the same
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ya i think i have her email
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Okayy
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): good
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): OK world flatts
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): trying to remember also where they are
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): scary I have been alive since 1960
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Just making sure, what does 'flat' mean?
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Connected?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): its a metaphor by the guy who wrote the book
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): thomas freidman
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Yeah, for what?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): oh
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): did u read the book?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): its basically showing how these 10 "world flatteners" have
made competition available to everyone
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): no'
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Okay...
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): i read on internet
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): no one "on a hill" so to speak?
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): So yeah, I'm going to say connected. Best definion I got so
far.
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Haha
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): flat world = globalization
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Mmm.
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Nice.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): ok
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Didn't think about that.
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): do you have the link for the book?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I mean online
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): no just type on google or wikipedia
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): ok
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): so how do you think these are linked to technology
innovation?
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): youll see
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): in the middle ages people that the world was flat
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): go down
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): yeah
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): there
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): basically talks about globalization and technology growth
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I think this is a resource, because previously the challenge is
about the market
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Business Plan
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Do we still need to draw the connection if we're doing TIP?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I think also that these flattners have made information
available to everyone
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): yes I think so...
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ya
                                                                                                   62

Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Okay
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): we are using insourcing
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Do we pick one?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I mean in-forming
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I was thinking that we could do technical stuff
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): who said we pick one?
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Then a brief explanation on its relations to the market
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Maybe idk
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Do we have to do all of them?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): no, ...
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): what do we have to do with them?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I think we will see the connection as we go along
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): windows is obvious
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Maybe the most relevant ones?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I mean were are using it now
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): what do we do with these 10 things?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): netscape or it's equiv is letting us work now
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Idk what to do with them
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): I think we may have a section for it once we look at the
rubric more
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): its a strating point for research
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): it says
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): let's just keep the flatts "back of the mind"
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): ya
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Okay
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): i
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): g2g soon
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Okay
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): yes

Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): You're all so busy
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): lol
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): right
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I'm chained to the computer for a film analysis
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): haha
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): nice
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): poor you....
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Hmm=]
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): :}
Pierre Winter (to All - Entire Audience): so anything for next week?
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Assignments.
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Do you know where Andrew is on the title pages?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): Yes - Pierre can you assign specific stems to people via
email this week?
Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): Yes - he started but got stuck when he felt his idea was not
going to work out
Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I want to do the first one, btw. The one I was assigned
before.

   Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Take care.
   Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): ok have a great week!
   Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): u2

Results: Andrew‘s previously stated that saltwater energy might not be a viable idea. Thus Pierre will post
links on saltwater energy so everyone could look them over, learn more, and decide together whether the
team will go through on it. In turn, Andrew will write up a brief report of why the idea might not work as
                                                                                                              65

   well as present in the next meeting his other ideas. Everyone should bring one new idea to the next meeting.
   Ivana will add an index to the Communications evidence. Pierre will reach out to Shanice and assure that we
   need her on the team; and he will also reassign specific STEMs that are related to the topic. The deadline is
   one STEM rough draft by next week. Finally, Ivana will reach out to the Global Challenge people and learn
   if we need to meet. Next meeting is on March 15th, 2008 at 3 PM PST.

Meeting on March 22nd, 2008

       Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Hi!
       Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): hi ivana
       Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Can I go to the bathroom?
       Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): we have a conferece calling number this time
       Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Okay, yeah.
       Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): can you call in? toll free
       Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): I will.
       Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Can I go to the bathroom first?
       Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Well, I'll be right back.
       Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): sure
       Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Kay, I'm calling
       Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): ok
       Andrew Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): hello hello
       Ivana Cheong (to All - Entire Audience): Um, what happens now?
       Andrew Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): *tick tock* goes the clock
       Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): So - next week assignments
       Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): Andrew - complete writeup of new idea
       Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): Ivana - key personnel
       Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): everyone work on STEM have in progress
       Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): Accomplishments in this meeting
       Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): Agreed on idea - Methanol fuel cycle
       Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): Posted to the Patent Office
       Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): All - read the Tragedy of the Commons, prepare to discuss
       in next week's meeting
       Jan Tramposch (to All - Entire Audience): We will play "Tradegy of the Bunnies" next week.

Results: On March 10th, 2008, the team found out that one of our teammates, Shanice, chose to discontinue
with the program because she couldn‘t have Internet access during the weekeds, thus she couldn‘t attend
meetings. So we had to make it work with three members. In this meeting, we tested a new medium of
communication along with our usual one, which is a toll-free teleconference number. This worked better than
GoToMeeting in terms of discussing and deciding our project idea, because we were able to offer opinions in a
quicker and more efficient way. Pierre didn‘t attend, and that was somewhat a drawback, because he would‘ve
been able to offer further chemistry insights. But otherwise, we accomplished a lot: we agreed that our previous
idea, saltwater energy, is not very effective, so we decided to do Methanol Fuel Cycle as our idea instead. We
submitted this to the Patent Office. Now, we‘re able to start on our Technical Innovation Description. For next
week, we all will continue with our STEM explorations, especially with ―Tragedy of the Commons,‖ which is a
team effort. Also, Andrew will produce a complete write-up of our Methanol Fuel Cycle idea for everyone to
review. Ivana will start working on the Key Personnel aspect of the project. Next meeting is Friday, March 28th,
2008 at 4 PM PST.
                                                                                                            66

      After this meeting, we called in on a teleconference number and only used the GoToMeeting for

simultaneous document viewing.

4.3   Additional Figures, Drawings, and Information

4.3.1 A Few STEM Explorations Examples

    Electromagnetic Radiation – Pierre Winter

    Basic Level
   1. What happens to wavelength and frequency when energy of a wave is increased?

             When energy is increased, the wavelength decreases.

             When energy is increased, the frequency of the wave increase




   2. What is thermal and non-thermal radiation?

             Thermal radiation is the standard radiation where the waves release thermal heat and/or light.
              Thermal radiation can be detected easily by humans because it can be recognized as light or heat.
              Non-thermal radiation is uncommon because the waves produced do not shed heat. Non-thermal
              radiation can be produced through electromagnetism with the use of a synchrotron.
                                                                                                            67

3. What is the difference between solar and terrestrial radiation?

          Solar radiation is energy released from the sun as a result of nuclear fusion. The reaction on the
           sun radiates electromagnetic energy outwards and some of this energy reaches the Earth.
           Terrestrial radiation is the form of electromagnetic energy that comes from the Earth. Mostly
           appearing from artificial sources, terrestrial radiation comes from man-made X-rays, nuclear
           weapons, and nuclear medicine.


4. What are photons?

          All electromagnetic waves are composed of photons, the elementary building blocks of
           electromagnetism. Photons supposedly have a mass of zero yet they exhibit momentum as well
           as polarization.


5. If you could see a certain wavelength of waves, which would you like to see?

          I would choose to see radio waves because they are so common. I would be able to tune into a
           radio channel by looking at the wave, measuring its wavelength, and calculating its frequency. I
           could listen to my favorite channel simply by seeing how long one period of the wave lasted. I
           would see waves going into nearly every car and building. I would also see waves coming from
           satellites from far away.


6. If you built a telescope on the ground to study infrared light coming from distant stars, where
   would you locate it and why?

          I would locate the telescope in line with the rays coming from the stars and the water molecules.
           I would also put it in a place closer to the equator because these are the areas that receive the
           majority of the electromagnetic waves.


7. Do you think you could see the “colors” of radio waves if your eyes responded to short
   wavelengths of visible light?

          I think that you would see the colors of radio waves because you would be accustomed and
           adapted to the wavelengths of those types of waves. Just as we can see visible waves on Earth,
           people on a different planet who are adapted to those waves will be able to see them.


8. Snakes' eyes are sensitive to infrared radiation. This makes them good hunters at night in the
   dark. Why?

          Snakes are sensitive to infrared radiation because they are not accustomed to the length of those
           types of waves. They are good hunters at night because darker colors of the spectrum appear
           where wavelengths are shorter.
                                                                                                      68




 Going Beyond
  What is Planck’s Law and what does it tell you?
     Planck‘s Law tells you the intensity of a radiation wave depending on its wavelength and
        temperature. There are 3 constants used in the equation: h=6.625 x 10-27 (Planck constant),
        k=1.38 x 10-16 (Boltzmann constant), and c=3 x 1010 (speed of light).




                        If someone new the wavelength and temperature of a certain wave and compared
                        it to another wave, we would be able to see the difference in intensity between
                        those two waves.

  What is Wien’s Law and what does it tell you?
                                                                                                       69

      Wien‘s Law states that peak wavelength and temperature are inversely related.


                                    is peak height of the wave
                             b is Wien‘s constant = 2.897 x 10-3
                             T is temperature of the wave in Kelvin

You can also manipulate the equation to introduce frequency as a variable.



f = frequency in Hz          α = 2.8214(constant)            k = Boltzmann constant

T = temperature in Kelvin            h = Planck‘s constant

With Wien‘s equation, you can calculate the frequency of a radiation wave based on its temperature.
You can also measure the temperature and calculate the wave‘s wavelength.




What is the Stefan-Boltzmann Law and what does it tell you?
   The Stefan-Boltzmann Law states that the energy given off by a wave of radiation is proportional
      to the temperature.



                             j = energy released    T = temperature in Kelvin

                              σ = Stefan-Boltzmann constant (5.6704×10−8)
       If someone knew the temperature of a certain wave, they would be able to find the energy give
       off by that wave of radiation.
                                                                                                          70




1. The sun's temperature is 6,000K. Calculate the peak wavelength emitted by the sun. What type of
   EM wave is this? Accounting for all wavelengths, what is the total rate of energy emitted by the
   sun (assume the sun behaves as a perfect black body)?


          =?
   b = 2.897 x 10-3
   T = 6000 K                                     = 2.897 x 10-3/ 6000
                                                  = 4.82833 x 10-7 meters
   This would be in the visible light part of the spectrum and humans would be able to see these waves.
   This makes sense because these are the wavelengths of the sun‘s rays and we can see these.

   Total rate of energy from sun = σ x T4
   Total energy = (5.6704 x 10-8) x (6000)4
   Total energy = 7.3488 x 107 Watts/meters2
2. By taking actual measurements, we know that Earth's globally averaged surface temperature is
   288K. Knowing this temperature, what is the peak wavelength emitted by Earth. What type of EM
   wave is this? Accounting for all wavelengths of energy emitted by Earth, what is the total rate of
   energy output from Earth (assume Earth behaves as a perfect black body)?


          =?
   b = 2.897 x 10-3
   T = 288 K                                   = 2.897 x 10-3/ 288
                                               = 1.0 x 10-5 meters

   This would be considered an infrared wave and humans would not be able to see it. This shows that as
   radiation waves get hotter, their wavelengths get smaller.
                                                                                                            71

   Total rate of energy from Earth = σ x T4
   Total energy = (5.6704 x 10-8) x (288)4
   Total energy = 390.1 Watts/meters2



3. What are the similarities and differences between the Sun and the Earth’s radiation curves?

   Both the sun‘s curve and Earth‘s curve start out small and they begin to increase. Both of the curves
   show visible light which means that the Earth does glow a little bit. The sun exhibits much more visible
   light and that is the reason that the sun is very bright when you look at it.

4. You've looked at the characteristics of radiation emanating from Earth and the sun. What about
   from you? Suppose your surface body temperature averages 90°F. How much radiant energy in
   W/m2 would be emitted from your body? At what wavelength is this radiant energy emitted?
   What kind of wave is this?


   90° F = 305 K = T
          =?
   b = 2.897 x 10-3                             = 2.897 x 10-3/ 305
                                                = 9.498 x 10-6 meters

   The radiation coming from a person would be considered infrared radiation. It is very close to the
   humanly visible spectrum so it is possible that people could ―glow‖.

   Total energy released = σ x T4
   Total energy released = (5.6704 x 10-8) x (3054)
   Total energy released = 490.7 Watts/meters2

5. Lastly, we know from actual measurements that Earth's surface temperature is 288K. But what
   would Earth's surface temperature be if we had no atmosphere? You can assume that Earth
   radiates 240W/m2 in the absence of an atmosphere. Why is the observed temperature of Earth
   (with an atmosphere) warmer than what we calculated assuming that there was no atmosphere?
   What is this effect called?


   Total energy released = σ x T4
   240 Watts/meters2 = (5.6704 x 10-8) x (Temperature4)
   Temperature = 255 Kelvin

   The Earth is warmer than what we calculated because the absence of an atmosphere allows more of the
   sun‘s rays to penetrate the Earth‘s surface. If more of the sun‘s radiation waves are entering the planet,
   the average temperature will increase. This effect is called the greehouse effect.


 Going Crazy
                                                                                                                 72

   1. What kinds of things can you think of that could affect how energy is absorbed and emitted by
      Earth, and, as a result, alter Earth's surface temperature.


       I believe that mechanisms which take in sunlight and convert it into another form of energy such as solar
       panels can alter the Earth‘s temperature because they stop the rays from reaching the ground and they
       use light energy to create other forms of energy. Anything that provides shade would also mean that it is
       stopping the sun‘s rays from reaching the ground.


Goal 1: What is temperature in 0C? How about 0F?

       Initial Temperature is 288.08 K
        Initial Temperature is also 14.93 ° C   and 58.87 ° F

Goal 2: Will the surface temperature increase or decrease as the surface reflectivity (albedo) increases?

       I believe that a higher reflectivity will cause a decrease in the surface temperature.
       The model test revealed that an increase in the albedo does decrease surface temperature and vice versa.
       The initial temperature at the top of the atmosphere is decreased because a larger amount of radiation is
       kept in from greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and water vapor. Earth‘s surface albedo could
       change with a change in season (during winter where water freezes into ice). Answer C – As the surface
       albedo increases less solar radiation is absorbed by the model planet so the surface temperature drops.

Goal 3: Will the surface temperature increase or decrease as the amount of atmospheric water vapor
increases?

       As more water vapor enters the atmosphere, the temperature of the Earth will decrease. When I ran the
       test I found out that this was not true and that temperature goes up when more molecules are in the
       atmosphere because they block the rays from being released into space.


Goal 4: Will the surface temperature increase or decrease as the concentration of CO2 increases?

       I believe that CO2 levels are directly related to temperature and that an increase in those levels will lead
       to a rise in the Earth‘s temperature. When I ran the model, I found out that I was correct and that my
       hypothesis was true.

Goal 5: Will the surface temperature increase or decrease as the top of atmosphere solar intensity (Solar
constant) increases?

       I believe that a higher solar intensity at the top of the atmosphere will lead to higher temperatures on the
       ground because more rays are being transmitted through and this means that more will also stay in
       because of the greenhouse gases that are already present. My guess was correct and the model shows
       that an increase in the solar constant leads to an increase in the surface temperature.

5. Profiles who in the academic or scientific world the team talked with to get ideas/information for the solution.
Describes this experience and discusses the impact on the development of the product or process.

We talked with Aaron Sathrum, a scientist working on the research of our idea. He discussed many of his
opinions on global warming, and let us in on what work they were doing to make this type of renewable fuel
useable within the a reasonable time span. This talk gave us more and more confidence in our idea, that at one
point in time it will work, and will provide the human race with a great source of renewable energy.



6. Quantifies how this process reduces the global warming impact (e.g. reduces greenhouse gas emissions?
lessens the quantity of fossil fuels used in transportation? improves the efficiency of solar panels?). Includes
math equations, symbolic representation, and /or diagram that demonstrate the impact.

Aaron basically answered this question for us, saying that it basically eliminates green house gases, by keeping
the CO2 out of the atmosphere and in a controlled environment.

Aaron also stated that in this process there was one main math equation that surrounded it all. ―The important
equations involved are the thermodynamic data for the reactions (this can be looked up in any textbooks) as
well as the standard set of equations involved in any solar device (quantum efficiency, fill factor, max
current/voltage etc). The solar spectrum and band gap of semiconductors greatly determines the efficiency of
the device.‖
