Bioluminescent Plants- Free/Sustainable/Secure/Inclusive Light Source!

A kiddo who is out with severe migraine headaches asked me to turn this in for him to be considered for the jury.  His mom thinks he spent too much time working in the dark last week and weekend trying to create his bioluminescent plant prototypes for the Innovation Project.  HAHAHA.  

Bless his heart.  Here is his project, including the video demo.  



Here is just the video explanation and demo: https://drive.google.com/open?id=11rmwLaga9cvAxX_kp1WqyFi4POQCObzI



Gender Equality- Safety Necklace!

Week 2 invention

VR Surgical Practice

It began as an idea to help others get access to good doctors, and doctors getting access to patients and patient care practice through VR.  It has evolved into health care practice that can be operated with VR/robotics.  

Imagine a doctor in the U.S., and a sick patient at a clinic in Guatemala.  Using satellite technology, a doctor, using VR, can operate the robotic limbs of the machine in Guatemala and perform the surgery, just as the doctor in the U.S. performs robotic surgery on their patients here, but the only difference is that it is being operated from a distance.  

Wonder Brush! Clean Water/Good Health & Wellness

After researching about water, we realized that some of our daily routines actually waste a lot of it, especially for hygienic purposes. We decided to modify the normal toothbrush by placing filters inside of it. Our invention allows us to limit not only the amount of water that is lost when the faucet is run but also, limit the amount of bacteria that is spread when people use contaminated water to brush their teeth, maximizing the amount of purified water available to impoverished regions.
