We are students at Harmony Science Academy (HSA) in Beaumont, Texas. HSA is a science and technology based college preparatory charter school. One of our goals as HSA students this year is to qualify for the International Sustainable World Energy, Engineering, and Environment Project Olympiad (ISWEEEP), http://www.isweeep.org/. Last year 70 countries were represented at ISWEEEP. Our project, The Piezoelectric Effect, was awarded first in team division at the regional level, qualifying it for ISWEEP. The ISWEEP event took place in Houston at the George R. Brown Center and consisted of a weekend filled with activities and banquets, allowing the HAS team the opportunity to meet students from all over the world.

This year our project fits into all three categories of ISWEEP: Energy, Engineering, and Environment.  A 1987 FORD E350XL Ambulance has been graciously donated for the use of converting it into a bio-diesel, solar-powered, mobile DJ machine. The ambulance, affectionately known as Janis the Jam Wagon, belongs to DJ Skdjam Man (Eric Evans), and is currently being used as a mobile DJ vehicle. Janis would like to become a new and improved lean, mean, music-playing machine (ecologically speaking).

Ford Motor Company has generously donated a diesel engine to replace the original V8 7.5L. We are still in need of a mechanic to install the engine and the components to build the solar batteries or the funds to purchase the goods and services. We are a non-profit organization, so your donation is tax deductible.

In return for your generous donation, not only will DJ Skdjam Man permanently place your company logo on both sides of the solar ambulance, but Channel 4 Fox will also cover an ongoing story following the project. They have committed to three segments, but plan to follow the project as the boys advance in each competition. Free advertising!! What more could you ask for?

Dr. Tony, PhD from the Smart Energy Research Center at Lamar University will be assisting us in converting the engine, ‘cooking’ the bio-diesel, and assembling the solar panels. Dr. Tony is currently doing research on fuel cells at Lamar, and specializes in energy to replace the use of fossil fuels. Dr. Tony, aka Solartony, has received many awards for his work, including a prestigious international award from the UN/Unesco.

Ford has graciously agreed to donate the engine! Our team received the following email this morning:

‘We can support providing a 7.3L IDI Econoline engine for the project.   Let us know the shipping details so we can get it delivered to the correct location.

I do not have a listing of certified Ford Diesel mechanics in the area.

Thank you for the opportunity to support the project.’

Now, we just need to locate a mechanic to ship the engine to and to help install the engine. We’ve contacted several solar equipment companies. Hopefully, our luck continues!

Thanks to Ford for you interest and support!!

To Whom It May Concern,

We are students representing the Harmony Science Academy (HSA) in Beaumont, Texas. HSA is a science and technology based college preparatory charter school. One of our goals as HSA students is to be accepted into the International Sustainable World Energy, Engineering, and Environment Project Olympiad (ISWEEEP). Last year about 70 countries were represented at ISWEEEP. Our project, The Piezoelectric Effect, was awarded first in team division at the regional level, qualifying it for ISWEEP. The ISWEEP event took place in Houston at the George R.

The ambulance, affectionately known as Janis the Jam Wagon, belongs to DJ Skdjam Man (Eric Evans), and is currently being used as a mobile DJ vehicle. Janis would like to become a new and improved lean, mean, music-playing machine (ecologically speaking).

We are asking for the donation of a diesel engine to replace the original V8 7.5L or the funds to purchase one, new or rebuilt. The oil for the bio- diesel engine will be collected from area restaurants as they are ready to dispose of their old cooking oil. Dr. Tony, PhD from the Smart Energy Research Center at Lamar University will be assisting us in converting the engine, ‘cooking’ the bio-diesel, and assembling the solar panels. Dr. Tony is currently doing research on fuel cells at Lamar, and specializes in energy to replace the use of fossil fuels.

In return for your generous donation, not only will DJ Skdjam Man permanently place your company logo on both sides of the solar ambulance, but Channel 4 Fox will also be covering an ongoing storyfollowing the project. Your company will also be represented each time our project progresses to the next level. Free advertising!! What more could you ask for?
