Science fair award
Eric Spilman, a 2017 Mandan High School graduate, earned a fourth-place Grand Award at the 2017 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
Spilman’s entry in the international pre-college science competition was “Waste Heat Recovery to Reduce Engine Emissions.” The project was a hydrogen-enhanced combustion system for car engine air intake that reduced air emissions and reduced fuel octane gas requirements. His award was in the Physical Energy Category.
Spilman is enrolled in engineering at Bismarck State College and plans to pursue a chemical engineering degree at South Dakota School of Mines, Rapid City.
