Archer’s annual STEM Symposium is an opportunity for Los Angeles high school students who have completed independent or small group projects in STEM to present their findings. Students are invited to present their research in the fields of molecular biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering.

The Archer RISE Award honors exceptional young women for their innovative scientific research or engineering design projects that further existing knowledge or develop solutions to pressing scientific challenges. Finalists for the RISE Award are noted in throughout the online program and will be awarded at lunch on May 21.

This project is an effort to design and build a zero carbon habitable structure. I have chosen to use an unusually broad definition of "zero carbon". Zero carbon buidlings are commonly defined as a buidling that offset all carbon emissions from their operation with on-site renewable energy generation. My project is a 75 foot A-frame, off-the-grid "microshelter" - it will easily meet this definition.
