St. Martin Secondary school has copped the winning position with their project “Flushometer” at the Sagicor Visionaries Challenge on Wednesday afternoon.
Coming in at first place is the Dominica Grammar School with a project which was geared at highlighting the positive effects of Sulphur on crops and at second place is the Convent High School with a project dubbed “Eco Dinning Hall.”
Students of the St Martin Secondary School provided an eco friendly way of dealing with the challenge of the inability to flush the toilets at their school effectively when there is low water pressure or no water.
This project portrayed toilets which used less water that regular toilets and were powered by solar energy.
The top three teams will take away prizes for their school which will enhance learning. The prizes include a computerized technology centre with easy to use data loggers, censors, experiments and graphic analysis software and science kits for the school.
The winning school will move on to the final regional competition in Barbados in April with the chances winning an all expenses paid participation in the STEM Ambassador Program in Florida.
One student representative will also travel with a teacher to Florida for an all expenses paid STEM related tour which includes visits to the Kennedy Space Centre, the Museum of Science and Industry, Disney World’s Epcourt Theme Park and the Patal School of Global Sustainability.
