Three local students won top awards at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair last week in Phoenix, Arizona.

Anne Jing, a Grade 12 student at Assumption College School in Brantford, took first place in the biomedical engineering category.

She won a $3,000 prize for her project called "Project ATTIS: An Assistive Aid for Parkinson's Patients Using Vibrational White Noise to Reduce Resting Tremors."

Hamilton's Joseph Saturnino, a Grade 11 student at Bishop Ryan Catholic Secondary School, won second place in the category of robotics and intelligent machines.

His project called "Robotic Revolution in the Construction Industry: An Autonomous Roof Shingling Robot" earned him a $1,500 award.

Sabrina Mogus, who is in Grade 9 at White Oaks Secondary School in Oakville, came in third place in the environmental engineering category for her project "TLC — Tigernut Liquid Coagulant: An Undiscovered Biocoagulant for Water Turbidity Reduction."

The win earned her a $1,000 award.

These top high school winners and two others from the Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair attended the international fair where there were more than 1,400 projects representing 82 countries.

Arielle Ainabe, a Grade 12 student at Oakville's Garth Webb Secondary School, also attended as well as Westdale Secondary School's Neha Gupta, who was BASEF's student observer.
