Overbrook eighth-grader Kaili Liu won the Middle Tennessee Science and Engineering Fair Middle School Grand Prize and first place in eighth-grade for her project: The Inverse of an Ice Cube: a Controlled Exothermic Reaction with Calcium Oxide. She says her inspiration for the project came during a long-distance drive last summer when she heard her father complain about cold coffee. Her project explored methods that could safely and conveniently release heat in drinks and behave like the opposite of an ice cube.
