Super Plastic Scientists

Super Plastic Scientists

Oberthur Primary School

Project: Australia has been sending recycling rubbish to developing countries rather than solving the problem locally. We investigated different ways to recycle plastics and explored a range of solutions. We decided that we will need to establish local recycling infrastructure to solve this issue properly and they invented the super plastic processor which can melt and remold plastics into plastic pellets and those plastics that can’t be recycled will be provided to maggots as food sources.

Swap Machine

Swap Machine

Perth College

Project: Our invention is a reverse vending machine that will swap your recycle materials for recycle dollars. The recycle dollars can be used to things in the canteen. The materials that can be recycled are Paper, HDPE Plastic, PET Plastic, Steel cans, Aluminium cans and Glass. To use our machine, students will need to first scan their canteen cards and then their recycle materials with bar codes. They will get money for each material to spend in their school canteen. If students don’t have a card or bar code in the material they just recycle. We used light and movement sensors to make our machine automatic and also has braille to help people who are blind.

Project: Elderly people often have problems carrying their shopping. This has inspired us to brainstorm a solution. In the end, we came up with the Walker. Now elderly people have an easier way to transport their shopping. The Walker is a robot that looks like a metal table with caterpillar tracks on the bottom. It follows you so you don’t have to push it. The Walker is easy to control and portable. If there is an obstruction on the path the Walker will stop and lock. It has a detachable basket on the top, making it easy to access. It will carry your shopping around so you don’t have to carry it.

Feeding The Future

Feeding The Future

Narrogin Primary School

Project: The problem with small inland countries is they have trouble finding food to feed their families, unlike bigger countries close to shore as they can easily find fish to feed on. The idea we thought of to solve this problem is to send food, medicines and seeds via a boat to 3 countries we learned are in the most poverty and starvation. So we have programmed an Edison robot to be our example model to follow the routes and tracks and avoid obstacles. We have planned a route that has no shipwrecks and currents. We have designed a boat which could carry our supplies.

Future Farming

Future Farming

Narrogin Primary School

Project: The problem is that farming fertilizers and chemicals are getting carried by rainfall and water into dams causing the water to get contaminated. We found out that CO2 is very important for plant life and is a good fertilizer, so we decided to use it instead of the farming fertilizer. We did an experiment to see if the CO2 fertilizer was as good as the farming fertilizer. We designed a plan for a farm to apply our results to a real life system.
