Philip Streich
Philip was a wonderful part of the Creativity Foundation family-he embodied the sprit of creativity in each and every thing he set his mind to: in business, entrepreneurship, and in public service. He was a warm andgenerous person to his family and friends and to all others who came to know him. Through his work and studies Philip was determined to make the world a better place for everyone. His joy and enthusiasm will be sorely missed, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
Born in New Jersey and raised in rural Wisconsin, Philip Streich has loved science as long as he can remember, and living on a farm was "like owning a huge laboratory. It also gave him firsthand experience with environmental problems like soil erosion, pollution, and drought. Philip was home-schooled from 7th grade through high school, took online courses from Stanford University, and attended courses at University of Wisconsin Platteville, where he was drawn to nanotechnology research. Philip's research contradicted previous assumptions and proved that carbon nanotubes are thermodynamically soluble. His findings may hold the key to using nanoparticles in revolutionary applications, like space elevators, tiny fast nanocomputers, and efficient and inexpensive solar cells. His research entailed designing and building measurement equipment more precise than commercial instruments, and Philip holds numerous patents for his discoveries.
Philip won the 2007 Intel Foundation Young Scientist Award. In 2008 he was named a Davidson Fellow Laureate, was honored by Discover magazine as one of the Discover 50 "Best Brains in Science," and was the youngest and first non-faculty member to be named a University of Wisconsin System "Innovative Scholar of the Year. His work has been published in the magazines Science and Advanced Materials, and the company he cofounded, Graphene Solutions, was featured in Business Week and won the 2008 WI Governor's Business Plan top award. As a 2009 Intel Science Talent Search finalist, Philip was elected by the other finalists to win the Glenn T. Seaborg Award for scientific communication and the Creativity Foundation's 2009 Legacy Medal for his exceptional creative promise as a scientist and entrepreneur.
Philip's interests are not confined to science, though. In 2006, he took top honors in his state for Piano and Vocal Solo and was National German Exam Winner the following year. He will enter Harvard this fall, where he hopes to combine studies in chemistry, physics, and molecular biology. Politics is another of his passions: Philip is founder and president of Grant County Youth Democrats and is the elected treasurer of the Democratic Party of Grant County.

Philip Streich '13, second from left, poses with his freshman roommates from Weld on the day of Freshman Convocation. In addition to being a talented intellectual, Streich was also a social force for his class.
Philip V. Streich '13, a Harvard student known for his exceptionally broad range of enthusiastic commitments, died in an accident Tuesday on his family's farm near Platteville, Wis., Leverett House administrators wrote in an email Sunday.
At times an enthusiastic entrepreneur, a scientific prodigy, a political activist, a record producer, and a grandiose party host, Streich carved himself a Gatsby-esque role among the Class of 2013 during its first year at Harvard. Friends said Sunday that he will be remembered not only for his impressive accolades but also for serving as a socially unifying force for his freshman class.
...
Streich arrived at Harvard his freshman year already more famous than most students. A native of Princeton, N.J., who moved to Wisconsin in middle school, he had received numerous science awards, including the prestigious Intel Foundation Young Scientist Award, and had co-founded a nanotechnology company.
At 14, Streich enrolled at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, where he began research on nanotechnology. A discovery about the solubility of nanotubes led him to co-found Graphene Solutions, which he continued to work on even as a student at the College. He left Harvard during his sophomore year to work more on the company and his many other projects.
Though Streich had earned renown as a teenage scientist, friends say that he was more interested in what he could accomplish socially on campus. At Harvard, he sought out the "quintessential college experience," Pforzheimer said.
When he determined that his dorm room in Weld would not provide ample space for the kind of entertaining he envisioned, he rented an office in the Square to create a novel social space for freshmen.
...
Even with the dedicated social space, Pforzheimer said a steady stream of students came to their door in Weld just for a chance to meet Streich.
...
Chloe L. Altchek '13-'14, who lived in Streich's entryway in Weld, said classmates referred to Streich as "the super genius.
...
During conversations about his research, Altchek said Streich was down-to-earth about his accomplishments.
...
Though friends said the popularity of Streich's dorm room led to more than a few run-ins with their entryway proctor, Justin Schoolmaster, Schoolmaster said Streich only got into "the best kind of trouble."
Schoolmaster said there was never a dull moment when Streich was nearby.
"If I weren't his proctor and I were in college, I would want to hang out with him too," Schoolmaster said.
Though known primarily around campus for his scientific work and his stewardship of "The Property," Streich had yet more claims to fame.
His Porsche, studded with parking tickets, could frequently be seen parked on De Wolfe Street by Leverett House, where he lived before leaving the College.
...
In the office, Pforzheimer said Streich opened up a safe that contained his original tubes of graphene from his research and a solar panel.
...
Streich broke the solar panel into little pieces and gave one to everyone in the room.
...
From planning parties to researching nanotechnology and more-in between, Streich found time to serve as his county Democratic Party treasurer in Wisconsin and to found a second company, focused on developing solar energy technology-Streich's efforts were geared toward making a difference.

Streich,s project helps with the development of a new super-strong material, carbon tubes, that, according to Streich, could be used to build a bridge to the moon.Here is a selection from the article: Streich, a 16-year-old who is home-schooled in Belmont and takes classes at UW-Platteville, was one of three students out of 1,500 to take home top honors last week at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Albuquerque, N.M....
"The best thing about doing research is that it,s so exciting," Streich said Sunday from his parents, 400-acre farm about 65 miles southwest of Madison."You can go from equations in a book and ideas in your head to building an instrument with your own hands.Going into the lab wasn,t work to me, it was just fun."...
Streich has been home-schooled since seventh grade but said it wasn,t until last year that science "finally clicked."
Takes online classes
Now, Streich teaches himself at home, takes online classes from Stanford University and last year took physics, chemistry and German at UW-Platteville.This year he took U.S. and world history, organic chemistry, German and genetics.
He also plays piano and guitar, sings, acts, composes jazz, enjoys fly fishing and is politically active.He is treasurer of the Democratic Party of Grant County, founder and president of the Grant County Youth Democrats and president of the Platteville Youth Commission.
But while he,s unsure where life may lead, he no doubt will be prepared.
"What I,m trying to do is not get too focused on one topic but to learn a lot of separate disciplines and keep my options open," Streich said."It,s going to be extra important to have experience in more than one field."
According to the Intel Web site, Streich,s research provided the first evidence that carbon nanotubes, which are among the strongest and most conductive materials in the world, are thermodynamically soluble, which means they can be isolated from bundles of nanotubes without degrading the nanotube,s properties....
