A pair of Waterloo high school students really nailed it with their science project.
Moulik Budhiraja and Katelyn Wu from Bluevale Collegiate Institute earned an award at the Canada-Wide Science Fair and STEM Expo in Edmonton.
The Grade 12 students won the Platinum Award for Grades 11 and up in the Innovation category for their project Nail Braille: A Novel Approach Towards Braille Education.
Their objective was to create a method of braille education that ensures better learning. The project uses 3D-printed parts and hobbyist electronics to provide an effective and less-expensive method to learn using braille.
Moulik and Katelyn were two of 900 students from across Canada that took part in the science fair.
According to a news release, more than $1.6 million in scholarships, awards and prizes were handed out to 220 students. More than 238 judges took part in selecting this year’s winners.
