Bronze for Riley at Eskom Expo for Young Scientists

Riley Singh Eskom Expo

Eskom Expo for Young Scientists is an exposition, or science fair, where students have a chance to show others their projects about their own scientific investigations.
By participating at expo students increase their awareness of the wonders of science, add to their knowledge and broaden their scientific horizons.
Annually, at the prestigious Eskom Expo for Young Scientists International Science Fair (ISF), selected students from 35 Expo Regions in South Africa compete against the best young scientists from around the country and around the world.
Riley Singh, in Grade 9X at DHS, exhibited his entry at the KZN Central Region Expo at The Enchanted Garden in Durban on Wednesday and was placed 3rd in the Medical Science category. Below is his account of his experience.
“On 15 August, I entered the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists and was awarded 3rd place in the Medical Science category. For this achievement I was awarded a bronze medal. There were 35 other students in my category and approximately 545 projects in the entire Expo.  The project I chose to do was a health care robot, which scans a person’s body for any pathogenic frequencies and then analyses them.
In the end, it was a foolish error that probably cost me the “Gold”, and that error was not creating an adequate poster.  Even though I was frustrated, I realised my mistake and will now strive to improve in any future expo.”
Congratulations on an excellent achievement, Riley!
