Akshay wins big at Dallas Science Fair

Akshay JaitlyCongrats to Akshay!

Akshay Jaitly, SEM freshman, won the "Southwestern University of Texas STAR award", given to the best innovative project at The Dallas Science Fair 2016-2017, Dallas, as well as first place in Mechanical Engineering.

He did an independent Science project to help the Visually Impaired connect to the digital world.

Akshay created a keyboard that fits on one's fingertips. There are four “keys” on the right hand and eight on the left. Pressing the correct combination of the two makes the computer type a desired letter. He used materials from only the home depot and an arduino board so that it is easy to replicate.

He is pictured with his father.
