Hudson Valley Pathways Academy InvenTeam
Stone Ridge, New York
The Hudson Valley Pathways Academy InvenTeam seeks to lessen the prevalent and serious risk of tick bites by helping pet owners find ticks more easily on household pets. The team will develop a wireless, battery-powered, handheld tick detection device that will accurately and consistently scan pets for ticks and provide an on-screen visual and an audible notification when a tick is detected. We will accomplish this by introducing multiple sensors which will increase detection capabilities in conjunction with a calibration system for individual pets to further increase the tick detection.
