London, England (PRWEB) September 01, 2015
The MPAC Group, the UK's leading corporate compliance and regulatory advisory firm, announced today that home school student Randy Bowman from Leesburg, Virginia, USA is the winner of the 2015 Cubes in Space – MPACGroup Top Design Award. This honour is given annually to the person, or team, whose design was selected as the best overall and innovative experiment to be launched into space from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Virginia. The MPAC Group also announced its continued support for the 2016 program, whose launch will take place in London, England during World Space Week.
Cubes in Space, a program series from idoodlelearning inc., offers global design competitions at no cost for students 11-18 years of age to develop STEM-based experiments for launch into space. 2016 will mark the third year for the program, which has included hundreds of teachers and thousands of students from 22 countries around the world.
The 2015 MPAC Group Top Design Award winner Randy Bowman’s experiment reflected his concerns regarding the global environmental issue of acidification of ocean water. The experiment tested the potential to use a device called a bipolar membrane to fight ocean acidification by determining if hydrogen ions could be separated in the water samples thereby changing the pH values.
“Randy represents everything the Cubes in Space program and MPAC Group believes in, which is nurturing and challenging the great minds of the future.” Said Nick Andrews, Chairman of The MPAC Group. “The incredible thing about this fascinating experiment is that Randy is only 11 years old, and hopefully this award will encourage him to continue with his studies.”
“We are also honoured to be spearheading several STEM-based events through the month of October in London to coincide with the launch of the 2016 Cubes in Space program and World Space Week.’, Mr. Andrews continued.
