Bee Monitoring System
Vinuka Gamage, Ashmit Pharande, Evan Jin, Swarit Dwivedi, Pruthvi Nerali
Haileybury


CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder) is an issue plaguing bee colony around the world. The cause of CCD is still unknown, although there are many theories. To try and determine the root cause of this dire problem, we have designed a device that monitors and measures all the circumstances surrounding a beehive. Using cheap, cost effective, 3D printed models and raspberry pi, we can deploy our device around the world to monitor on a large scale and identify a pattern. We have included a weather station that monitors rainfall, wind direction and speed and air pressure. We have also included a camera with intelligent AI that can spot parasites on the bees. We have tested this, and it can differentiate between regular and infected bees. If it does detect any parasites, it will send a discord message to the beehive manager to save the beehive.

Smart Fish Tank
Yianni Feretzanis, Oliver La Nauze, Avanith Manoj, Matty Milias
Haileybury

Smart Fish Tank utilizing the concepts of applications, water quality and temperature, auto feeding and cleaning, ph. checker, inbuilt camera, shark simulator and a display screen.

Fish cannot be moved around and can easily be forgotten. It is impossible to keep an eye on your fish for the entire day. You can look after your fish even when you are a long way from home. By using programing and the joining of all us we can make a difference to the life of a fish.

We are making a Smart Fish Tank. We are incorporating the features of PH sensors, temperature sensors, and lights. The fish tank’s main goal is to make the many jobs of looking after a fish tank either automatic or alert you whenever there is any trouble, and/or if your fish tank needs cleaning. We are using notifications on Discord to schedule specific requirements, such as feeding the fish, pH Levels, and seeing if the water is at the right temperature but if you do not have time for that, you can just fully automate by pushing a button. Having this feature would be a breeze. Small mistakes have big effects on living things. The organization is key when keeping track of whether it goes from reminders to notifications. If companies get their hands on our coding, they can use that to make it for other animals like birds to dogs.

Medinize (Modernize your Medicine)
Ishan Rahul Gadkari
Glen Waverley Secondary College


Medinize is an innovative smart device to manage your medication. My project is to develop a smart device that is controlled by a Mobile application which allows patients to take the correct medication and the correct dosage, at the correct times. This can be used by both the patient and their carers.

Music for the Hearing Impaired
Karshin Sachdeva
Haileybury


Currently, 1 in 6 Australians experience hearing loss or deafness with ages ranging from students to seniors. Research has established that deaf people experience and enjoy music through vibrations. Vibrations and perceiving musical notes are quite similar as they both are processed in the same part of the brain. Brain activity in the auditory cortex help the deaf person perceive music and feel emotions from it. People with hearing disabilities currently rely on loud speakers since they provide enough vibrations for them to feel the music. In the market, there are devices that can sense sirens and vibrate an individual’s hand to alert them; however, there is nothing in the market that fully allows hearing impaired people to use both touch and vision to experience music. To solve this, a wristband that consists of multiple vibrating motors can be placed on a deaf person’s wrist. One motor would play the melody whilst the other would play the bass. These vibrations allow hearing impaired individuals to enjoy and perceive music without disturbing anyone else.

PyAngelo Arcade Table
Julian Rowse, Brandon Zhou
Haileybury

PyAngelo learn to program using Python online

Our school uses PyAngelo, a free online Python playground, for students to learn how to code. However, there is no way to see the best creations—called sketches. We will add a Gallery to PyAngelo, where teachers curate the best, most well-thought-out sketches for everyone to view on a dedicated webpage. Students also have the ability to submit their sketches to the Gallery, where teachers will review their sketches before adding them or not. Additionally, we took this one step further by integrating it into an arcade table with a joystick. The arcade table and joystick is controlled by a Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi will first load the webpage with a modified GET header to hide the header and footer. It will then map the joystick to the arrow keys, which means that the user will be able to move around. Additionally, the joystick will be used to select which sketch. Once the user selects a sketch, the Raspberry Pi will load that sketch and run it.

Command See
Andrew King, Caelen D’onofrio
Fitzroy High School (Wurun Senior Campus)


Its annoying if you can’t remember what you last copied and it’s just annoying to paste. So instead you can use this extension to display what you have stored! The extension creates a window which displays what is currently in the clipboard. The window can be resized and can be bound to a toggle button. The extension supports text, pngs jpegs and everything will be listed as a file name and type. Shows history.

VRadio.tv: A new place to listen and watch
Tom Altis, Evan Rifat, Archie O’Connor
Fitzroy High School (Wurun Senior Campus)

The main goal of our platform is to offer user created channels which are called “Video-Radio Stations”, users are able join these stations and watch along with the queue of that particular station. The creator of that station is able to add movies, tv-shows and music to that queue and then the viewers of that station queues will be updated in real time.

Last.fm and Imdb are sites which allow users to share film and music respectively, however, there is no platform which allows the shared and structured listening that we will aim to offer.

This platform will allow people who can’t talk to friends for whatever reason, say they are sick, moved away from their home city, etc.. will allow them to hang out with friends like they were at their house watching tv or listening to music together.

Users of this program will be able to listen to music and film they would of never otherwise seen since this platform will be able to combine multiple people’s taste in a single queue. This will allow our users to expand their own individual music and film tastes.

Our platform has a community focused approached. We rely on the users of our platforms to create these “Video-Radio Stations”, we won’t create standard stations due to us wanting to maintain focus on this being ran by the users of our platform and we will not dictate what stations can and can not be created.

Virtual to Reality Mech Simulator
Riley Page, Brandon Chung, Hayden Sullivan, Aidan Byrne
John Monash Science School

This project aimed to create a robot controllable from within a vr headset using hand tracking a reverse kinematics to control a robot with fully articulating arms over a web server. The concept was that by using this technology, the user interface and learning curve would be vastly simpler and easier compared to numerous industry standard remote-control robots especially those with this level of adaptability. In addition to the simplistic and easy to understand control system, using arms built based of humans we can help mimic numerous standard human actions from a safe distance where the only thing in danger is an expendable robot. To help support this concept of using expendable robots in unsafe areas, the project was built on a minimized budget in order to make these robots simple and affordable.
