I was in charge of the first half of the presentation which involved making a solar-powered heater using solar panels. I generated a MATLAB code that gave the required heat output depending on outside temperature and wind velocity which enabled us to design our solar panel heater under extreme conditions in Pomona, California. Although, our project ended up costing a lot, it was still a lot cheaper than the portion of the project that involved a heat sink.
