The winners of the DigiCamp2017 innovative camp are known
The best ideas of the 5th annual DigiCamp innovative camp being implemented by the Union of Information technology Enterprises (UITE) in Hanqavan are already known.
The first Honorable prize of the "DigiCamp 2017" has been awarded to the team formed around the ideas on the "Smart Lights" and "Talking Gas" by 14 years old Aram Poghosyan. The "Smart light" system turns off and on the electricity with the help of the mobile applied software. The idea of the “Talking gas” is to prevent the gas outflow. The gas outflow system emits a sound signal when there is gas outflow. If the gas user does not respond in 5 seconds, then a short message informing about the gas outflow is sent to the gas user.
The 2nd place has been awarded to the team formed around the idea on Body-building by Tatul Khachatryan. The idea is to create a flow through the internal heat energy of the person. The device looks like a belt and is designed for mountaineers, hikers and travelers.
The 3-rd place has been awarded to Khachik Movsisyan's team with the idea of "In the world of Physics". It is an online physics laboratory which displays different laws and resolutions in physics in 2D format. The laboratory is developed for teachers, pupils and students.
