AllergyScan earns students top prize

  • Secondary News

Two St George's Year 9 students will attend the European Union Contest for Young Scientists in Poland to showcase their project, AllergyScan, a clever new app that collects and delivers allergen data from food packaging via a QR code.

Leonardo and Ido impressed the judges with their project at the Jonk Fuerscher 2024 contest in Luxembourg last weekend. Watch their presentation here:

The contest is organised by the Fondation Jeunes Scientifiques Luxembourg, which aims to promote sciences among young people aged between 11 and 21 on a national and international scale.

Leonardo and Ido were joined by fellow Year 9 student Isabella, who presented her project about ancient temples and how they "survived" earthquakes. A geologist was particularly interested in Bella's ideas and she has been invited to attend Mobisscience in France (Exposciences en Occitanie).

The students' commitment, positive mindset and creativity was impressive. They also revealed excellent public speaking skills and engaged well with teachers and students from other schools.
