It’s the National Science and Maths Quiz season… And we know y’all can’t wait for the competition to start.
The competition starts today with the preliminary rounds. But before the start of the competition, there was a 2-day Sci-Tech Fair held at the GCB Lecture Hall at the University of Ghana on June 14 and June 15.
On display at the Fair were amazing inventions by the Senior High School student.
Here are some of the inventions the students displayed:
Students from the Presbyterian Boys Senior High School, (Presec Legon) developed an app called ‘Exeatlog’, which helps in keeping and managing the issuing of exeats in Senior High Schools. The app also helps school authorities to keep track of student movement.
Students from Sekyedumase SHTS also built a Smart Irrigation System which is able to determine the level of moisture in the soil and then waters the crops as and when it is needed.
Students of Don Bosco Technical Institute also built this Parapet Storey Building. It is a building that has been built above roof level, to protect the building from strong winds and bad weather.
Students of St. Thomas Aquinas Senior High School designed a sound system (which they call the Tire X-Bass) made from an old vehicle tire. The purpose of this project is to provide entertainment while saving the environment from pollution and diseases.
Second-year students of Ghana National College also displayed a variety of energy saving bulbs, which they assembled by themselves.
Students of Lawra Senior High School designed a multi-purpose box made up of a Phone, Solar panel and Solar charging, an antenna, a PA system, radio and rechargeable internal and external batteries.

Another interesting invention which was displayed at the fair was a Solarbrella, put together by students of Mfantsipim School. The invention allows for the charging of items on-the-go with solar power
Students from Pope John SHS also designed a Palm Fruit Juice Extractor. The purpose of this project is to reduce the stress of preparing palm nut soup, a delicacy for many Ghanaians.
Saving the best for last… On display at the SciTech Fair was the award-winning project at the 2019 Robofest World Championships in Michigan.
The robot, ArcBot designed by students of Methodist Girls’ Senior High School. The robot has been programmed to move black and white boxes into 4 slots which represents a 4-digit binary code.
