Everett Lawson

Everett Lawson is a master’s degree student in the MIT Media Lab. Everett invented eyeMITRA,
a small, inexpensive device to non-invasively screen and monitor the early development of many
systemic diseases that manifest in the back of the eye years before detection with standard
methods. This disruptive technology enabled by clever optics, computational imaging
techniques and novel illumination can extract vital information about your well-being, including
early stages of diabetic retinopathy, the world's leading cause of preventable blindness.

Bay Path Technical High School InvenTeam

We will invent an assistive mechanics creeper that will allow those with bad backs, knees, hips, and even the elderly to work underneath a car. This invention will allow a person to slide from a wheelchair onto the device, lower, and recline backwards to the posistion of a traditional creeper. This can be done without the person ever having to get up and adjust it. The device will be able to hold a maximum weight of 300 pounds.

Berlin High School InvenTeam

The Berlin High School InvenTeam is inventing a device for the deaf and hearing impaired designed to alert the user to incoming traffic when participating in a sporting activity. The device will alert the user to traffic approaching when 6 feet away, on either the left or the right by the use of an ultrasonic sensor designed to trigger a feedback device in the form of a coin style vibrating motor mounted to the end user’s left and right arm respectively. The device itself is mounted by a clip mechanism to the back of the user.
