Millet claims silver at science fair

BCSS Grade 12 student Brandon Millet took his Electrolytic Hydrogen Fuel Cell to the regional science fair and came home with Silver.

BCSS Grade 12 student Brandon Millet took time last week to explain his Electrolytic Hydrogen Fuel Cell to members of BCSS PAC who has helped him fund the project.

BCSS Parent Advisory Council (PAC) were given a presentation by Grade 12 student Brandon Millet regarding his attendance at the West Kootenay and Boundary Regional Science Fair in Nelson on April 12.

PAC supported Brandon financially to help him build his electrolytic hydrogen fuel, which converts water into hydrogen and oxygen gas.

“You can burn it in your car or put it back together to make electricity out of it,” Brandon told the Times. “Just put it right through your air intake and it will burn.”

His experiment took a silver medal in the Senior Experiment category and won him a nomination for the BC Hydro Science Fair Scholarship worth $2,000.

Brandon has been accepted at UBC where he will study mechanical engineering.

BCSS science teacher Cam Spelay said that Brandon is the first BCSS student to go to the fair in a long while. “Because Brandon went first other Grade 10’s are excited and they want to go next year,” said Spelay. “Movement start with Brandon —which is very cool.”

“This is cutting edge technology,” Spelay continued. “All of the automobile people are trying to do this and he built it himself. Something that I couldn’t do—something his father may have helped with, but couldn’t do—something that other people around here couldn’t do and he did it. That’s what is awesome.”
