Profile Info

The Illuminator is a device created by Johnathan to direct the maximum sunlight onto plants to help them grow efficiently, or onto a solar panel array to provide the most electricity. He has designed a solar tracker to measures the precise angles the reflecting mirrors need to adjust to, which are done automatically. Jonathan has shown that this device works and that radishes grown under his device do very well.

The Illuminator won the Senior Science Award and was also a finalist in Senior Environment, Senior Engineering, and Senior Software, fantastic work Johnathan!
