First Place: Leyla Spiteri

Second Place: George Lenney

Hands Free Gate

“The system works when you stand on the footplate, it pushes down the end of the lock; lifting the hook end from the lock pin, the bar swings down into the space on the gate post and then you just need to kick the gate and it’s open! It will swing back and the lock will fall and reset.”

Ultrasonic 2m Distance Notifier

“By connecting ultrasonic range finders to a belt which the user wears, the user is notified when they come too close to another person – helping them to enforce social distancing.”



First Place: Luca Casula

Electronic Education Device

“My project is called the Edustation and it is a practical and cheap alternative to education without the need of internet. It is a handheld device consisting of a: case, switch, circuit boards, keyboard, touch screen, and stylus. Information is formatted onto a micro-sd card.”
