PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Chapman Caddell, a sophomore at Stevenson School in Pebble Beach,
California participated in the 2014 Intel (News - Alert) International Science and
Engineering Fair (IISEF) and emerged with the Physics and Astronomy
"Best of Category" Award. Caddell competed against 1,800 students from
more than 70 countries, regions and territories. He interacted with
students and scientists, including Nobel (News - Alert) Laureates, and underwent 8
hours of interviews with 21 judges, most of whom were physicists from
around the world.

Each year approximately 7 million high school students around the nation
present their projects at loal science competitions. Having won his
category at the Monterey County Science Fair in Monterey, California,
and winning a grand award, Caddell was invited to participate in the
week-long competition and present his project, "The Leidenpump: A
Non-mechanical Means of Fluid Delivery." While Caddell envisions various
applications for the Leidenpump, the primary application presented at
Intel involves a non-mechanical solution to cooling nuclear reactors.
In addition to the IISEF "Best of Category" Award, Caddell was also
awarded the Intel Foundation Cultural and Scientific Visit to China
Award, which involves an 11-day trip to China to attend the China
Adolescent Science and Technology Innovation Contest, the largest
national science competition in China. As an awardee, Caddell will visit
science education institutes, research centers, middle schools and
universities in China to exchange ideas with Chinese scientists and
like-minded peers with the goal of "gaining a better understanding of
China science programs."
Caddell also won two special awards, including Arizona State
University's American University Scholarship, a renewable four-year
comprehensive scholarship, and a first award from the Patent and
Trademark Office Society. In addition, as a winner in the Physics and
Astronomy category, Lincoln Labs and MIT (News - Alert) will name an asteroid after
Caddell emerged from the competition with nearly $10,000 in monetary
awards, $1,000 of which will go to Stevenson School to support science
programs and the remainder of which he intends to devote to further
development of his Leidenpump.
