Jack Krasulak, one of St. Andrews Episcopal Academy’s outstanding students, took first place in Engineering in the Junior Division of the 61st State Science and Engineering Fair of Florida. The fair took place March 29-31 in Lakeland, Florida.
Numerous projects were presented and this year alone over 140,000 projects were displayed at 2015-2016 sub- regional events; 11,000 were chosen to exhibit at one of 37 Florida Regional Science and Engineering Fairs (RSEF). At the regional fairs, 950 projects were selected to represent their regions at the State Science and Engineering Fair.
Krasulak came up with the idea for his project after working with injured servicemen and women through the Renewal Coalition. After interviewing our combat wounded heroes, he realized that the current hull design of a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) transport vehicle used in combat was made to absorb blasts from Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). Krasulak redesigned the hull to split and redirect the shock wave caused by an IED blast.
“I was so proud to represent St. Andrew’s and St. Lucie County at the State Science Fair with a project that could possible save the lives of military personnel,” said Krasulak.
“Jack Krasulak is a model student in every aspect,” said Head of Schools Trina Angelone. “We are so proud of his accomplishment at the State Science Fair – he is a shining example for academic excellence in St. Lucie County.”
