Every year, the Environmental Management Association takes part in the annual Science & Engineering Fair of Metro-Detroit as professional awards judges for the high school environmental science category.

Volunteers come together to interact with students and learn about their projects, evaluating each on the basis of scientific thought, creativity, thoroughness, skill, and clarity.

The EMA would like to thank the Doestch family for their commitment to our environmental science fair scholarship program in honor of the late James Doestch, a true legend in the environmental industry. We are proud to honor three well-deserving students with our 2023 James Doestch Memorial Science Fair Scholarships!

FIRST PLACE: User-Friendly Defective Solar Cell Detection Using Artificial Intelligence

SECOND PLACE: Graphene Sand: Unlocking the Potential of Metal Air Batteries

THIRD PLACE: Is Too Much Road Salt Harmful for the Environment?
