The Upright Silo Deicer

Student: Sheldon & Emily Vissers

District/Region: Chignecto Central Region

Event: 2008 Canada-Wide Science Fair

Sheldon and Emily are students at Hants East Rural High School and they invented a device called 'The Upright Silo Deicer'.

'We built an Upright Silo Deicer, which sits on the frozen silage between feeding times to thaw the frozen feed built up on the walls of silos. We tested it with a small model (2 cubic foot bin) and a larger scale model (250 gallon barrel). The Upright Silo Deicer does thaw enough silage to meet the needs of the daily feed requirements.'

At their Regional Science Fair, Sheldon and Emily took Gold in Computer Technology & Engineering in the Senior Division.

Congratulations, Sheldon and Emily!
