After the faculty and students spent the afternoon seeing all the projects and casting their vote for the best project, one student emerged victorious. Billy Horton, creator of the drift bike that so many students enjoyed watching in action, was crowned the winner of the 2016 SKS Fair. Other students were awarded as the best in certain categories that define the Center for Innovation programs. Slava Browning won the Sustainable Earth category with his "Farming Through Time" project which displayed different tools that were important in the history of farming. Ryan Liao won the Sustainable Design category with his aforementioned watch controlled lamp. As for the category of Sustainable Community, Shiqi Hu ran away with the vote. His project was called "SKS Tablesetting" and talked about how the traditional way of laying out silverware for meals at the school could be perfected to avoid waste.
Although the 2016 SKS Fair fell behind schedule due to student breaks and sports tournaments, the final event was impressive. The boys fought through the adversity and came up with innovative, exciting projects. Each of the winners brought something unique to the table and they all deserved the recognition they received. We look forward to next year's event to see how the Fair will continue to develop.
