Four Mumbai students win at national STEM fair – Times of India

MUMBAI: Four students from the city have won laurels for their projects at the recently concluded Initiative for Research and Innovation in STEM (IRIS) national fair. All the four students, Sidharth Jain (17), Aasimm Khan (17), Tvisha Gala (16) and Kareena Shankta (17) are students of the Jamnabai Narsee International School, Juhu.

Sidharth Jain and Aasimm Khan, have won the Grand Award at the IRIS National Fair for showcasing their non-invasive screening and classification of skin cancer lesions in genital regions. They will now represent India at the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), a mega international competition to be held in the USA later this year. The project aimed at screening suspicious lesions on the skin of the genitalia region to aid dermatologists to conduct only necessary biopsies with least invasive measures thus avoiding unnecessary lesion removal and pain, since biopsy for skin lesions in the genital region is extremely painful resulting in severe pain, infection, numbness, stinging, bleeding and blackness in the area. The scope of the project identifies non-cancerous and cancerous, pre-malignant and malignant skin lesions and then specifically classified into five cancer classes as Actinic Keratosis, Basal Cell Carcinoma, Intraepidermal Squamous Carcinoma, Melanoma, and Squamous Cell Carcinoma.

Tvisha Gala and Kareena Shankta won the Special American Psychological Society Award at IRIS for devising scalable measure of dyslexia in children through eyeball tracking and phonological testing using machine learning algorithms. Their innovation included designing a prototype to identify dyslexia in children through eyeball tracking and speech recognition technology. With this prototype screening quantifiably identifying the problem at a very early age will be possible by an eyeball tracking and speech recognition technology.

Every year IRIS National fair, a public-private partnership initiative funded by the Department of Science & Technology (DST) is organized to promote and nurture Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research among young Indian innovators. This platform recognizes and rewards outstanding projects and provides young innovators a platform to get recognized at the national and international STEM events.

The two teams were mentored by tutors at OMOTEC (On My Own Technology), which teaches STREAM (Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Art and Maths) and courses on robotics, among others.
