Southview HS student headed to an international science fair for solar-powered dress

SYLVANIA, OH (Toledo News Now) - A student at Southview High School is heading to an international meeting in Maryland to show off a unique fashion creation.

Allison Clausius has created a solar-powered dress. At the 52nd Ohio Junior Science and Humanities Symposium held at Bowling Green State University Allison presented her creation.

She says it can charge a smart phone in about an hour.

“You need over ten thousand lux, which is the measurement of light, and it'll charge your phone or tablet or iPad, whatever kind of connection you have for the device,” said Allison.

She will also be presenting her research at the State Science Day and the Buckeye Science and Engineering Fair in Columbus, Ohio.
