  1. Fate and Fortune: A Story-Based Algebra Simulator of High Seas Trade

    SBC: MidSchool Math, LLC            Topic: 99190018R0005

    Purpose: This project team will fully develop and test Fate and Fortune, an online class-wide intervention where grade 8 students learn algebra within a story-based game. Research demonstrates that students who do not succeed in algebra are more likely to eventually drop out of high school. When students begin Algebra I, a lack of conceptually meaning and understanding can be further reinforced by ...

  2. Commercialized Supercooling Technology for Subzero Nonfreezing Preservation of Fresh Foods

    SBC: JUN INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 85

    Jun Innovations has developed a proprietary supercooling technology that preserves perishable materials at below-freezing temperatures without the formation of ice crystals. Foods are maintained in their natural state for weeks with the same taste, texture, nutrition, and moisture content they had before being supercooled. This technology offers a radically new food preservation method for consume ...

  3. Formulated Sardines: a high-moisture, sustainable diet for fastidious feeding high-value marine fish

    SBC: Kampachi Farms, LLC            Topic: 87

    The current dependence of grouper and tuna aquaculture on "wet fish" diets poses challenges for the long term viability and scalability of such aquaculture in the U.S. and internationally. There is a recognized need for alternative feed formulations (those including agricultural oils and proteins, such as soybean meal, soy protein concentrate, wheat and corn gluten, canola, poultry and other anima ...

  4. Innovative Marketing of Hawaiian Pongee- Phase II

    SBC: Hawaii Fish Company            Topic: 812

    Pongee Channa sp. are an esteemed freshwater food fish in Asia, Hawaii, and domestic Asian seafood markets. Traditional customer preference is for a live product. However, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service banned the import and interstate transport of live Channidae in 2002. Therefore, the only options to market Hawaii-grown pongee outside of its established range on Oahu, Hawaii are as fresh chi ...

  5. Renewable Energy Aquaculture Aeration for Small and Mid-Size Farms

    SBC: Hawaii Fish Company            Topic: 812

    Low dissolved oxygen levels are the most frequent cause of catastrophic fish mortalities in aquaculture farming, resulting in substantial dollar losses of valuable aquaculture crops annually. To address this problem, the U.S. aquaculture industry most often uses floating paddlewheels and/or aspirating aerators for nightly or continuous aeration and circulation of aquafarm waters. However, power co ...

  6. Targeted Irrigation Management (TIM) and Initial Suite of Remotely Sensed Agronomic Tools

    SBC: HYDRO BIO            Topic: 84

    According to the USDA (2012) approximately 80% of the Nation & #39;s consumptive water use, and over 90% in many western states, is used in agriculture. Groundwater provides over 50 billion gallons per day for agricultural needs. Long term water level declines caused by sustained groundwater pumping for agriculture are impacting the environment at large and the agricultural community specifica ...

  7. An Integrated BioGas-Solar Dehydration System: Increasing Sustainability through Value-Added Agriculture

    SBC: OMNIGREEN RENEWABLES            Topic: 86

    Mandates for biofuels have resulted in the significant increase of biodiesel production in rural communities. Hawaii's Jatropha biodiesel production will produce nearly 650-700 kg of residues, consisting of Jatropha seedcake and fruit hulls for every metric ton of seeds harvested for oil production. In addition, the biodiesel conversion process will produce another 30-50 kg of crude glycerin, ...

  8. Aina Mo Soil Amendment Project: Organic compound from biodiesel glycerin co-product to control apple snail (P. canaliculata) on wetland taro

    SBC: PACIFIC BIODIESEL, INC.            Topic: 812

    Apple snail, (Pomacea canaliculata), a highly invasive pest affecting wetland crops in 18 countries including the U.S., is listed as one of the 100 Worst Global Invaders. One study showed that due to its voracious appetite, present value damage from the snail could cost Philippine rice production as much as 2.3 billion dollars annually. In Hawai`i, the apple snail invasion has reduced taro harvest ...

  9. Digital Data Recorder for Gauges in High Speed Weapons During Survivability Testing

    SBC: Dynamic Systems And Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA092014

    The development of a high-shock data recorder for use in projectile penetration and pyrotechnic environments is critical to understanding the loads that warhead systems are exposed to in tactical applications. Data from recorders mounted inside warheads can be used by researchers to measure loads on the warhead, fuze, and explosive fill components as well as validate analytic and computational mo ...

  10. Agaricus mushroom production utilizing local substrate materials

    SBC: OCR INC            Topic: 812

    Hawaii has year-round growing conditions and abundant agricultural land, yet it still imports more than 85% of its food. More than 2.3 million pounds of Agaricus mushrooms, a mushroom family that includes Portobello and Crimini, were imported each year in 2006 and 2007. Currently, these mushrooms are not produced in Hawaii. Increasing the production of locally grown food products would not only re ...
