Deandre - We came up with the idea of a brain damage indicating helmet because of our involvement in sports. I am a martial artist and i do where a sparring helmet, but I must always be careful of strong blows to the head and knockout strikes that can damage my brain, even if I feel fine. So with our invention, it would be easier for me to know if my brain is at risk for developing further injury, and I can seek medical treatment right away. Now, we have to investigate more accurate methods of calculating minor brain damage, and come up with newer and more effective ways to indicate the user of the possibility of minor brain damage. Some advice I would give to other students is that if you come up with an idea but don't know how to make it work, don't disregard the idea. Keep trying and learn how to make it work, and don't give up.
Tanish - I am a grade 10 student who is apart of the SciTech (Science and Technology) Regional Program. I have always had a strong passion for the sciences since a very young age which is shown by my extra curricular's and volunteer work. I am apart of the Science and Innovation club and also volunteer at the Brampton Civic Hospital. I got inspired to create my innovation after I heard about the story of my Grandfather who had been diagnosed with Parkinson's. He was an athlete and had received a concussion which he did not treat as of the high cost of medical care. This turned into permanent damage which is what inspired me to create a helmet that detects if there is a possibility of any minor/major brain damage in the central nervous system. My plans that I have for further investigations is to research about more theories/laws (Newtons first and second laws of motion) to make our device as accurate as possible. My advice for future students thinking about doing a project is to make sure that they have a clear vision before starting the project and to always have proof/evidence that your project is effective.

Smart Helmet which measures acceleration to detect minor & major brain damage
Ville:Brampton, ON
École:Chingacousy S.S.
Sommaire:Our Innovation is a helmet which ensures that any athlete with a concussion/brain damage is not left untreated. The G-Shield measures the rate of change in velocity to detect minor and major brain damage using an accelerometer and arduino technology. When it comes in contact with a large amount of acceleration, it detects the amount of g-force that has been accelerated towards it.
