Doon presents their Brain Computer Interface project at tenth International Science Conference
The tenth International Science Conference was held at Tianjin Nankai High School China from October 13th -October 17th 2014. It is an international science exchange activity for high school students, which was initiated by Hwa Chong Institution in Singapore, St Paul’s co- educational College, Hong Kong China, Stella Matituna Girls High School, Taiwan China, The Hutchins School, Australia and Tianjin Nankai High School in 2005. The schools take turns to host the conference annually. In 2011,the Marco Foscarini School in Italy became a member school and hosted the 7th International Student Science Conference. The conference aims at providing high school students with an opportunity to exchange scientific research experiences and develop friendship.
The theme of this year’s conference was ‘Science-Creativity-Life’.

A group of six boys Rohan Hundra, Tejejit Pabari, Ragahav Kumar, Utkarsh Agarwal, Jagajit Singh and Prabh Sharan Singh Mamik attended the conference. A full programme saw the boys present the Brain Computer Interface.
The boys presented the Brain Computer Interface project which was widely appreciated by one and all. The congregation found it difficult to believe that 14 year olds could excel at making the mind boggling project on artificial telekinesis. They set up a direct communication pathway between the brain and the external device. The project when modified suitably can have indefinite applications from smart home controls, prosthetics controls, robot controls and even creating dream celebrities who could record their vivid dreams and convert them to movies and earn their livelihood by selling them. Our boys were asked probing and inquisitive queries which were answered confidently and comprehensively. The next conference will be held in Taiwan in 2015.
