ECHS Physics Students receive Honors at Toshiba Competition

On March 17, three physics students, their parents, and their physics teacher, Mrs. Rea, traveled to Newport Beach to receive their prizes for Toshiba’s Exploravision competition. While there, they met with a Toshiba executive to discuss their project, a proposed new technology for smart camouflage, which would use cameras to detect and adjust the fabric colors to match a variety of environments. Pictured here are Jacob Simpson, Orion Hollings, and Alexis Madison, along with their parents, Mrs. Rea, and the Toshiba executive. Not picured is the fourth group member, Krista Hibert. This is the third time that a group of Mrs. Rea’s physics students has earned an honorable mention in the competition, an honor bestowed upon fewer than 10% of entrants.
