PROJECT TITLE: Mimicking fruit fly response patterns for threat evasion of airborne machines
GRADE LEVEL: Middle School - Grades 7-9
PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  Based on the dynamic, unstructured, and unknown nature of the environments in which both flying robots and flying organisms must operate, a novel biologically-inspired approach was used to create a simpler, faster, and more practical method of onboard threat evasion in a flying robot. Thus, a computationally and physically lightweight sensor module inspired by the fruit fly's rudimentary visual system, combined with algorithms to escape from approaching threats by mimicking fruit fly escape behaviors, was used to demonstrate a simpler, faster, and more practical method of onboard threat evasion in a quadrotor (a quadcopter - a multirotor helicopter that is lifted and propelled by four rotors).

The Display Board For Science Fair Projects
As you know, science fair projects are displayed on display boards.

Take in account that a lot depends on a good display board. If your display board is attractive, the visitors (including the judges) will have good impression about it. However, if your display board is cluttered and in a mess, the readers will get a bad impression about your work and will ignore it, no matter how worthy is your research.

Your display should be a promotional presentation and not a full description of your project. Remember, the judges and readers have only a few minutes at their disposal to get impressed by your project.

A general display board layout follows. There are possible other variations for the organization of your science fair project on the display board.

PROJECT TITLE: An affordable AAC device for people suffering from Developmental-Disabilities
GRADE LEVEL: High School - Grades 10-12
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: People suffering from Developmental-Disabilities like ALS are almost entirely paralyzed and this disables them to communicate in any way except using an AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication Device) device. Current AAC devices are expensive, slow and bulky. This project suggests an AAC device which is affordable, faster and portable - a system that allows the user to exhale through the nose as Morse Code. It is able to speak and give commands in English using one of 9 different voices.

Story
Introduction

My name is Tzvi Rubin (Julian); born 1954; live in Israel in a little desert town called Dimona (the setting of my first novel).


I have been an avid reader from early age and penned my first novel at the age of twelve in Hebrew.


By profession, I am an electronics and computer technician and those are the position I held in the Israeli army Signal Corps and upon my release, at Bezeq, the Israeli National Telecommunication Company.

I earned my Bachelor’s degree in math and Jewish history at the Open University of Israel and make a living, mainly as an information specialist freelancer and as a math, English and science high school teacher.

I am also very interested in Bible history.


My first juvenile novel, The Orchid Grower, reflects many of my life experiences and interests (children, dogs, sports, science, Internet) . My main goal was to present to the young reader several scientific topics fluently interwoven into an adventure plot in order to encourage science, web and computer literacy among the young. I prefer to write for the pre-puberty age because those youngsters are old enough to understand and young enough not to lose optimism.

Education
  • Open University of Israel
  • Technion, Israel
  • Bezeq Telecommunications College, Jerusalem, Israel
  • Ami Asaf, Elementary School, Dimona, Israel
