Mentor Sought For High School Thermoelectric Project


Richard Kurtz

To whom it may concern,

I am coaching a team of three high school students who attend high
schools in New York City.  They are hoping to enter an international engineering
competition that they have started to work on called the Conrad Challenge.

They have been working on brainstorming ideas to come up with  unique
technology-related projects and have some ideas.  For the competition the
students do not actually physically make the product, they have to propose a
conceptual product and eventually develop a business plan around the product.
   The are very interested in the application of thermoelectric material to
generate usable energy especially in cars and or using glass.  But they are open

to any ideas and opinions.

I am a retired high school science teacher and wanted to know if there was
someone who I can talk to in your organization that may be able to identify
an engineer(s) who may be willing to help me mentor and prepare the students.
   Or just someone to answer some questions from your organization.

Right now we are in need of mentoring help as soon as possible.

Any assistance that you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

With regards,
