A team of local young inventors are so good at what they do, they have been picking up awards after awards.
And recently, they added another international award into their tropy cabinet.
Beat 400 other contestants
The team, consisting of Yuvika Mahaganapathy, 10, Kavisha Nagarajan, 11 and Kailesh Saravana, 11, are students of SJK(T) Taman Melawati, Kuala Lumpur, and their invention has been making the country proud.
Their latest achievement is bagging yet another international award: clinching a gold medal and winning the Young Scientist Award 2020
at the International Invention and Trade Expo (ITE) in London recently.
According to a report by The Star Online
, the gold medal win was for their invention called “My Soil My Plant”, a soil conductivity electrical tester that determines which type of soil is suitable for cultivation of different breeds of plants.
Their invention beat 400 other contestants from 27 countries.
Prior to this, the trio had also won gold at the International Invention Innovation Competition in Canada (iCAN) 2020, and a silver medal at the International Festival of Engineering Science and Technology in Tunisia.
On the home front, they have also won a local award this year by getting first place at the Malaysia Young Scientist Conference & Exhibition last month.
But that's not the end of the good news though: the team's invention could very well soon be commercialised!
Yuvika’s father, Dr Mahaaganapathy Dass, told the news portal that the team's innovation has been registered with the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia.
Their invention also could be commercialised soon as talks are going on with two organisations for the purpose.
Keep flying high, you kids!
