The "Young Engineer" competition

Five outstanding projects with human stories that will participate in the "Young Engineer" competition of the science-engineering major in schools all over the country

"Rainwater storage system and sinks and their use": The idea of ​​the water storage system came to the mind of a 2,000th grade student in Ort Singlovski, Roy Davidi following an unfortunate incident of flooding that happened in his home two years ago. Davidi realized that just as the house became a water reservoir, so he could build a system that would keep his house dry in the years to come and avoid wasting water by using rainwater for irrigation and gray water. Following the research conducted by the members of the group and surveys about the domestic use of water, they discovered that the financial savings do not fall much short of the water savings and it amounts to about NIS XNUMX per year per family.

"Eyes for the blind, a guiding robot for the blind": Rachel Bess, a student in the science and engineering major at Ort Habonim, Bat Yam, has watched all her life the difficult struggle of her blind family member with his daily routine. Already at a young age she realized that the help available today for the blind is poor and complicated and often requires a huge physical, financial and emotional investment from them. In the XNUMXth grade, when she entered the major, she decided that the solution to the problem was up to her and together with her team, she designed a robot that guides people to sleep, the only one of its kind in the world, which includes all the conventional aids that exist today, which significantly eases the daily routine of a person suffering from visual impairment.

"A therapeutic system that learns to alleviate the difficulties in the sensory regulation of autistic children"- Autistic children who suffer from impairment in sensory regulation (excess and lack of sensations) receive treatment with pressure exerted by them from the therapists. The system designed by students Mital Shabbat and Lidor Karako replaces the therapist's actions by means of air pressure applied to different parts of the body, in addition to the system's ability to increase the child's cognitive ability thanks to and allows him to concentrate on his studies (children with deficits in sensory regulation cannot concentrate for a long time because they try to make themselves feel, this system provides them with the missing sensations and thereby allows them to concentrate on other things). Dr. Natan Womberg, who is in charge of the neurology clinic and the child development unit, and Ruthie Chemia, who is in charge of the neurology clinic and the child development unit, helped and supported the entire research and also pointed out that this system can advance the aforementioned field of medicine by several steps.

Lung cleaning for CF patients: students Mittal Zriker, Yonit Turovsky and Ivan Varnov carried out their research at the Ramon school for children with severe mental retardation. Some of the children lack the cough reflex, which causes them to enter food and water into the esophagus and lungs. The treatment given to these children includes laying them on a large rubber ball and swelling on their backs, in the area of ​​the lungs. The treatment is done with the aim of removing the sputum and cleaning the lungs. From the findings that the children discovered, this treatment takes time, the patient may fall off the ball, and since the treatment is done three times a day, it takes a lot of time from the therapists. The alternative system consists of speakers that are attached to the patient's back with a belt, the small speakers are used to vibrate and cause the pus to be released from the sides, while the large speakers, which are used as a vibrating bass, help to get the pus out of the body, into a collection container.

"Bridging gaps for life" - A simulator that responds to life signals for the practice of medical and paramedic teams, built by 2 boys - an Arab and a Jew: in the project, a special and close collaboration was made between Mohammed Bayadasa, a boy who lives in Baka al-Gharbia and studies in Umm al-Fachem, and Emmanuel Ben Hefer, a Jewish student from the Education School, Maayan Shahar . The cooperation was initiated by the supervisors of the scientific-engineering major from both schools, Reuven Dinovitz and Aziz Matzareva. The children designed a CPR simulator that reacts with life signals and in real time to the quality of care according to the type of event entered into the system.

The simulator allows the apprentice to experience the theoretical material and prepare himself better for a real situation. When current medical apprentices who undergo training in CPR, for example, learn to practice "on dry land", that is, the experience is on static and non-responsive mannequins or in theoretical learning only. This is a situation that may cause, in the event of a real-time event, to misidentify the source of the problem, resulting in incorrect treatment that may result in the patient's disability or death.

On Tuesday, June 1.6.10, 100, the "Young Engineer" competition will be held at the Ort Harmelin Academic College of Engineering, in which approximately XNUMX XNUMXth grade students from the prestigious science and engineering major taught in high schools from all over the country will participate. The competition focuses on scientific engineering planning, measurement, proposing innovative and creative solutions in the field of engineering, construction and operation and thus constitutes an important means of cultivating excellence among the engineers of the future.

on network development and training administration Ort Israel:
The Administration for Research, Development and Training at Ort Israel is working to improve the pedagogical service and pedagogical practice in schools with the aim of raising the level of learning and teaching in the schools of the Ort Israel network. The network was founded in 1949 and includes nearly 160 educational institutions scattered throughout the country. Its institutions include: six- to two-year comprehensive schools, industrial schools, educational centers and technological colleges (for technician and engineer degrees), academies for engineering and the teaching of technology, and certificate studies in a variety of subjects. The network provides a broad infrastructure of science and technology studies based on the concept that scientific technological education is the guarantee for a solid infrastructure and social and economic growth in our country that is poor in material resources.

  1. It's nice to hear that in all the chaos around there are systems that know how to take talents and promote them in the right directions - science grows the real heroes of humanity.
