Silver Medal for Michael Wolfe
Nikola Tesla Educational Corporation (NTEC) would like to congratulate Michael Wolfe on being the recipient of the Silver Medal at the 2015 Canada-Wide Science Fair in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Michael was recently featured on the NTEC website for being the first recipient of NTEC’s Nikola Tesla Innovation Award at the 2015 Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair (BASEF).
Michael is a grade 7 student whose project, Wi-Tricity, was inspired by the work of individuals such as Nikola Tesla. His project explores the wireless transmission of energy thorough electromagnetic induction. Way to go Michael!
Michael competed in the 2015 Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair (BASEF). NTEC judges selected Michael’s Wi-Tricity for his presentation of a Nikola Tesla wireless power transmission. Michael is extremely knowledgeable about the life and inventions of Nikola Tesla. The Nikola Tesla Innovation award will be awarded on a regular basis to students who are motivated by the legacy of Nikola Tesla to pursue invention.
Michael’s exhibit did just that. Michael Wi-Tricity exhibit was inspired by Nikola Telsa by demonstrating how Nikola Tesla’s wireless transmission of electricity works.
Wi-Tricity garnered Michael five awards in total, including Canada-Wide Science Fair trip. This means that Michael will be going to the National competition in New Brunswick to present his exhibit.
NTEC presented Michael with a cash award, a certificate, Tesla Magazines and two Tesla Books. Congratulation, NTEC hopes to see you at the 2016 BASEF. Keep up the great work. Nikola Tesla is a tough act to follow, but those who study the past are prepared to build on Nikola Tesla’s legacy and innovate for the future. You have taken the first step, by understanding the past. Good luck in the innovation for your future.
