Four Edison Intermediate School students are finalists in a national competition for middle school girls. The stated mission of the 2019 ProjectCSGIRLS Competition is to “nurture an interest in science, math, and technology during the critical middle school period to help them better see themselves as the future leaders of tomorrow.”
Finalist and 7th grader Anusha Iyer created the Aquacheck, a water conservation project that tracks the amount of water used in a household. The finalist team of 7th graders Hannah Hollosi, Sofia Gil, and 8th grader Gabriela Gil designed an app and accompanying video with a unique solution for the disposal of wildlife killed by motorists that would benefit zoos and wildlife sanctuaries and lessen the risk of spreading disease.
The finalists have been invited to attend a gala in early June in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area which will feature guest speakers, hands-on workshops, technology talks, and a formal awards ceremony.
