Eko-waentjie wen Uitstalling en Smart Young Mindz Expo

 

Thuso Stop Hunger, ‘n NGO, het in plaaslike koerante mense uitgenooi om items van herwinbare materiaal te vervaardig. Hierdie items sou dan vir ‘n week lank in die Ouditorium van die Sasolburg Biblioteek uitgestal word. Skole, Medi-clinic, ouetehuise en individue het deelgeneem. Die doel was om mense bewus te maak van herwinning en dat items daaruit vervaardig kan word, wat verkoop kan word. As ‘n liefdadigheidsorganisasie wou hulle idees hê vir mense om self werk te skep.

Mev. Rinel Botha, Tegnologie-onderwyseres van Hoërskool Drie Riviere, het hulle geskakel en gesê dat die skool so pas begin het met herwinning en het vertel van die waentjieprojek wat die kinders gemaak het.  Hulle het die waentjie ingeskryf met die doel om mense te help. Die kompetisie was bysaak. Daar was afdelings vir produkte uit herwinbare materiaal, klereontwerp uit herwinbare materiaal en ‘n kunsafdeling vir plakkate ens.  Ons het die grootste afdeling, naamlik produkte uit gemengde materiale gewen. Die stalletjie het soveel belangstelling gewek dat hulle genooi is om ‘n groot uitstalling volgende jaar in Maart by te woon.

Die eko-waentjie is gemaak uit herwinbare material: ou staal het hulle in die houer by die skool gekry, onder andere gebreekte pallisades. Hulle het twee ou fietswiele gebruik en met behulp van mnr. Bester ’n basis gesweis. Bamboes is gekry van een van die leerders wat naby die skool,bly. Graad agts het bamboes gestroop, gesaag en self hittebehandel met n blaasvlam wat ons by ’n ouer geleen het. Dit is vasgebind aan die waentjie met katoentou. Die waentjie is ontwerp om agter ’n fiets te sleep en is ontwerp om die mense te help wat so ver loop om plastiekbottels te versamel met hulle groot sakke en waentjies met hulle klein wiele. 

 

Dieselfde waentjie is ingeskryf vir die Smart Youg Mindz Wiskunde, Wetenskap en Tegnologie Expo wat op 27 Oktober plaasgevind het. Dit was die streeksuitdunne van hierdie kompetisie en Hoërskool Drie Riviere stap weereens weg met die louere! Op 8 en 9 Desember neem die spannetjie met hul waentjie deel aan die Provinsiale kompetisie.

National fame for the Vaal Triangle

hearn

Hearn Johnson het die idee vir die hidrouliese arm wat hy self ontwerp en gebou het, gekry toe iemand wat hy ken in ’n rooftog geskiet is.
“My vriend se pa kon ná die skietery nie sy arm beweeg nie, toe maak ek ’n grap en sê vir hom hy moenie bekommerd wees nie, ek sal vir hom ’n nuwe arm bou,” het dié 18-jarige uitvinder gesê.
Hy het in sy pa se werkwinkel by hul huis in Henley on Klip aan die werk gespring om die arm te ontwerp en te bou. 
“Ek het baie tyd saam met mense wat prostese bou, deurgebring om vas te stel wat die beste ontwerp sal wees.”
Johnson het onlangs van die VSA teruggekeer waar hy ’n derde plek in die meganiese kategorie van die Intel-Isep- ekspo vir jong wetenskaplikes met sy hidrouliese arm behaal het.
“Ek beskou myself as ’n uitvinder; wetenskap is my lewe.”
Maar selfs al het Johnson hom al op internasionale vlak bewys, het hy nie vanjaar universiteitstoelating vir ingenieurswese gekry nie.
Hy het verlede jaar aan die Hoërskool Drie Riviere in Vereeniging gematrikuleer met 64% vir wiskunde en 68% vir wetenskap.
Johnson het egter sy hidrouliese arm by die Universiteit van Johannesburg (UJ) ten toon gestel en sal hopelik vandeesweek hoor of hulle vir hom ’n spesiale vergunning sal maak.
Johnson het gesê as hy nie aanvaar word by die UJ nie, gaan hy huil. “Die dag as ek my graad het, sal ek ’n meganiese ingenieur wees, maar tot dan is ek net ’n uitvinder.”Die hidrouliese arm kan tot 40 kg optel en het ’n battery­lewe van drie uur. 
Die vingers van die hand wat aan die arm geheg is, kan buig en uit mekaar sprei.
Die arm word deur ’n eksterne kontrole beheer en kan van appels tot klein skroefies optel. “Ek wil eintlik hê die arm moet in staat wees om ’n bal te vang of my te help juggle.”

 

UIT: Young Movers and Shakers Magazine.

Hearn Max Johnson’s love for science and doing engineering projects lead him to taking part in the 2011 Eskom Expo for Young Scientists, where we has awarded a gold medal for his category and received the Dr. Derek Gray Memorial Award

 

Young Movers and Shakers (YMS):

What career path did you want to follow when you were younger?

Hearn Max Johnson (HMJ):

I wanted to be a fireman because of all the cool and awesome equipment they had, and of course I wanted to ride in the fire engine with all the lights and sirens on.

 

YMS: What have been your career highlights?

HMJ: Winning the Sasol Techno X. Winning a trip to Sweden and being invited to the Nobel Prize week and the Stockholm International Youth Science Seminar which was held in December last year. Working in my dad’s workshop on countless projects I wanted to build and help him fix cars.

 

YMS: What have been your career hurdles?

HMJ: I have not had any real hurdles as I have had a workshop full of equipment which my dad has shown me how to use. This has enabled me to have great opportunities to build countless projects from a young age. My dad has also been there to teach me how to fix cars and I am so grateful for all the long hours I have been able to experiment with all the equipment in my dad’s workshop and for my parents support and funding even when many of my crazy experiments went wrong and almost blew up, set our house on fire and leaving the workshop with smoke countless times.

 

YMS: Who or what keeps you motivated?

HMJ: Talking to my brother Lytle while we canoe down the river and go running everyday. Spending time with my family on our spontaneous family holidays all over our beautiful country which is rich with engineering possibilities. Watching Mythbusters, How It’s made and science programmes. My mom taking me to the University of Johannesburg for the young engineering workshops and visiting Hands On Science Expos and her buying me a great supply of Experilab kits and Technical Lego.

 

YMS: You were recently awarded at the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists,

What did you get awarded for?

HMJ: My project HANDS ON which is a mechanical hand to help and improve the lives of the average amputee.

 

YMS: What prize/s did you receive?

HMJ: I received a gold medal for my category and the ultimate was receiving The Dr. Derek Gray Memorial Award at the national finals for the Eskom Expo for young scientist.

 

YMS: What motivated you to want to be part of the Eskom Expo for Young

Scientists?

HMJ: My science teacher Mrs Köstner, my love for science and doing engineering projects.  As well as wanting a gold medal.

 

YMS: What were your highlights of the expo?

HMJ: Meeting and talking to the founder of the Eskom Expo’s wife and founder of the Dr. Derek Gray Memorial Award, Prof. R. Gray. Meeting new people and sharing ideas with the other participants. Surprisingly also meeting the judges because they helped me to discover how to make my project better.

 

YMS: What is the biggest lesson you took from being part of the expo?

HMJ: Treating everyone equally and with respect as everyone is important in my eyes.

Hands On – Hearn Johnson (South Africa)

Hearn Johnson, a Grade 12 learner from Hoërskool Drie Riviere,started a project approximately 14 months ago which was entered into the Sasol Techno X and the Eskom Expo for young scientists by his science teacher, Mrs Köstner, who has always encouraged him to do well in science. He received substantial assistance from his science tutor, Graham Webber who has taught him a great deal about electronics.

The model for the project has been designed for lower-arm amputees who cannot afford expensive prosthetics. His prosthesis is functional, reliable and easy to maintain, enabling an amputee to enjoy bilateral hand function.

After conducting research into the average amount Medical Aid Insurance would pay for an amputee to receive a prosthetic hand, Hearn explored which prosthetic products were available, and how functional existing devices were. Research on the anatomy of the human hand was undertaken to understand how the human hand works. He discovered that when a human hand closes it is dependent on the ratio of the distances that the tendons move.

Research on the best method to power his prosthesis followed. Thereafter, he spent time learning about electronics in order to build the circuit to control the servos and control panel for the hand.

After building a prototype of a single finger, he built a mechanical hand with five moveable fingers and an opposable thumb. After proving  the workability of his concept, he built a second prototype, using X-rays to determine where to mount each of the fingers and the optimal length of each finger for the prototype to be as close to scale as possible.

Hearn attended an orthopaedic workshop, applying the acquired knowledge to fit his prosthetic hand to his own arm to demonstrate its degree of functionality.

The construction comprises a mechanical hand or prosthetic device for an arm amputee. It has five moveable fingers that can adduct and abduct, plus an opposable thumb. It has a moveable wrist and a grip width of 180mm. The prosthesis which can pick up a weight of up to 40kgs, costs approximately R1 899.With further development and funding it could be even better. Its manipulability will improve the quality of a lower-arm amputee’s life.

During the last few months Hearn has competed in the Sasol Techno X where he was the category, age group and overall winner. He won prize money for himself and for his school.  He also competed in the Eskom Expo for young scientists which is a national science competition. He won a gold medal in his category at the regionals. After the second round of judging, he was selected for the national finals. Simultaneously he won a substantial bursary to study at the University of Johannesburg at the SCIENTIAE@UJ PRIZE for presenting the best project at the Eskom Expo for young scientists.

At the national finals he won a gold medal in the engineering category and won the Dr Derek Gray Memorial Award, one of the most prestigious awards. By winning this award he has been selected to compete in the Swedish International Youth Science Seminar and he will be attending the Nobel week.
