Outstanding innovation and creativity were on display at the 2017 CIJE West Region Girls High School Engineering Conference on May 18th at the Westside JCC in Los Angeles. Students from Meira Academy, Palo Alto, the Torah High School, San Diego, Yeshiva University Girls High School, and Valley Torah Girls High School, Los Angeles, knocked it out of the park with their design engineered devices. These devices solved problems that ranged from waking sleepy drivers to a device that helped blind people learn the alphabet.
The winning Project of the Year was a project from Valley Torah Girls, was developed by Adina Ziv, Meital Shafgi, Aviya Gaviel and titled “CS2 Car Sleeping.” Their project focused on a sensor that detected when drivers were getting sleepy and once activated would wake them up using a device that vibrates. With 20% of road accidents linked to fatigue, this project has the potential to save lives.
Winners from the other categories were:
- Award for Best Social Value, “The Wheel Awake,” by Edan Green and Elinor Shalom, Valley Torah Girls High School
- Award for Outstanding Engineering Achievement, “Follow PET” by Toma Riskin, Tehila Nissim, Ita Rice, Meira Academy
- Award for Best Visual Display, “Sensory Insight,” Tzila Hadad, Gila Kohanbash, Penina Waghalter, Liana Seidenfeld, Yeshiva University High School.

Today’s Breakfast & Learning was an inspiring event for the boys and their fathers (and quite a few grandfathers). The breakfast was yummy and the learning even better.
Our Real Estate club hosted Yoni Zisblatt’s Grandmother ( Mrs. Esther Blaich ) as a guest speaker. Over 25 students attended her Real Estate Investing lecture.
Mrs. Blaich shared her vast experience with the boys and enlightened them with her real estate acumen.
