Katarina - My partner and I were learning Arduino at school when we began hearing of the upcoming school science fair. We were instructed to make a wearable etc. using coding in Makerspace, and design a project in science. We decided to kill two birds with one stone by making the Technosleeve. We have already been working on improvements and adjustments to not only the code but the design as well, with the eventual goal of marketability. To any other students thinking of doing a project I would say absolutely go for it. My partner and I never anticipated our project making it to Canada-wide, but even going to the different fairs and seeing the different projects has been a great experience. Now for a bit about myself. I am currently attending SAIL in the grades 8/9 accelerated program. I plan to attend post-secondary in order to one day become a pediatric neurosurgeon. As for hobbies, I am an air cadet, I love stop motion as well as babysitting; I volunteer at my church nursery on Sundays. I also love singing, acting, and wilderness survival.
Jesse - My name is Jesse Pound, and I’m in grade 8/9 at SAIL academy. At SAIL, I’m completing high school at an accelerated pace, meaning I’m completing grades 8 and 9 in a single year. Next year will be grades 10 and 11, and the year after will be grade 12. After I graduate high school I’d love to attend MIT and become an astrophysicist or aerospace engineer, because I love studying space and creating things! Outside of school, I play soccer and volunteer at the YMCA. I also like reading, writing, and filming. For science fair, my partner and I invented the Technosleeve; a reusable coffee cup sleeve that detects the temperature of your hot beverage and plays a song when it’s safe to drink. The idea popped into my head while I was falling asleep one night, and so far the invention has gotten a lot of positive feedback, with some even suggesting we go on Dragons Den. Currently we are considering our options regarding patenting and marketing it, however I never thought that we would make it this far. So students considering doing science fair should definitely try it, because you never know where it will take you!

The Technosleeve
Region:South Fraser
City:Surrey , BC, Surrey, BC
School:Surrey Academy of Innovative Learning
Abstract:For our project we invented the Technosleeve; a reusable coffee cup sleeve that detects the temperature of hot beverages and then plays a song and/or lights up once they are safe to drink (without burning your tongue). It is the first of it's kind, and has the potential to prevent burn injuries, help the environment, and save consumers money!
