On Saturday, April 25th, two members of the University High School InvenTeam – Abhinand Sudarshana and Justin Wang – gave a presentation of the Aerial Wilderness Distress Monitor and Search System at the 2nd annual Sustainability Showcase held at Cal State Fullerton.  About 150 people were in the audience.  The event, modeled after TED talks, consisted of student presenters giving talks on topics and projects in the area of sustainable design in front of a panel of judges.  Abhi and Justin emphasized how our search drone communications system improves the search and rescue process in terms of time, cost, and the environment.  They earned Honorable Mention for their presentation.

“This event was a great learning experience and it gave us an opportunity to hone our presentation skills in preparation for EurekaFest,” said Abhi.  “People came up to us afterwards to show support for our project – it felt awesome to receive such positive feedback.”
