- S3 students, Jiaye Chen, Kwan Ho Wong and Hiu Fai Hung, won two Silver and one Bronze Awards in the category of Lego Sumo of Infomatrix 2018.
“iKidney” developed by S.4 Chun Hei Mark and Chiu Chi Ma uses sensors installed in toilet, in conjunction with the Internet of Things (IoT) technology and mobile app, to analyse user’s urine colour and pH value. It helps users to assess their kidney health so that they can seek appropriate treatment at an early stage.
Robots developed by S3 students Jiaye Chen, Kwan Ho Wong and Hiu Fai Hung can be used as a patrol robot. It accepts manual remote control and follows pre-programmed procedure to patrol in different places automatically. Besides, it can also be used to compete against other players by using ultrasonic sensors to detect obstacles and colour sensors in a battle.
