Posted: Tuesday, October 24, 2023. 2:35 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Team Belize represented by students Amber Wright, Alair Marin, Irian Jones, Osvani Magana, and Principal Sister Clara of Pallotti High School are in Panama participating in 2023 Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Challenge.

Today, Team Belize conducted their final rehearsals ahead of the judging for the 2023 Samsung Solve for Tomorrow challenge.

For their entry, Team Belize developed Smartz, a two-piece set device that detects obstacles up to a metre away and alerts the user via a vibration. The Smartz glass detects obstacles to the head and face and the Smartz stick detects obstacles in the path of the user.

This device helps to reduce accidents and trauma to persons with impaired vision.

The Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Challenge is a global STEM innovation competition that encourages students between Form 1 and Form 6 to tackle emerging challenges and produce tangible innovative solutions to social issues.
