The students created a highly porous polymer membrane with remarkable oil absorption capabilities under the supervision of Dr Prasanth Raghavan and his colleagues at the Materials Science and Nano Engineering Lab (MSNE-Lab) at CUSAT.
Meanwhile, the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) is a US-based science fair that takes place every year. The Society for Science, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organisation based in Washington, D.C., owns and operates it. Each May, more than 1500 students from around 70 nations and territories participate in the fair for scholarships, tuition grants, internships, scientific field trips and the top prizes.
