Hailey Miya Van Wins $5,000 Broadcom Coding with Commitment Award

Following her 2nd Place achievement in Environmental Science / Environmental Engineering at OCSEF 2021 in March, Hailey, 14, Irvine, California, won the Broadcom Coding with Commitment Award for a project titled Multi-stressor Analysis of Carbon Dioxide on Oceanic Ecosystems: Using Climate Change Modeling to Study Hypoxia and Acidification. This award recognizes a finalist whose project and performance combines expert STEM knowledge and passion for helping or improving one’s community through coding.

Hailey’s research and data analysis focused on how carbon dioxide emissions effect our oceans.  Hailey found that if CO2 emissions continue, oxygen level in more than half of the world’s ocean water will fall to dangerously low levels by 2150, and ocean acidity levels will dramatically worsen.
