'Wow': Why two Saskatoon high school students are gaining national recognition | Globalnews.ca

Two from Centennial College Saskatoon's innovative ideas are gaining national attention.

Qin Yurui, 16, entered the Ingenious+ challenge with her AI-QUA Savior robot, which she designed to assist in underwater search and rescue operations.

“It's essentially an underwater search and rescue robot. The way it works is that the robot can move autonomously, so it can move on its own with the help of sensors. It can sink. It can surface in the water on its own,” Qin said.

Qin is currently acquiring materials to complete her second prototype.

Grade 9 student Kathy Han has taken top honours at the 2024 Canada Science Fair in Ottawa.

Han received the award for devising an alternative cancer treatment.

“My project is about designing biomimetic nanocontainers,” Han said.

“The nanocontainers are like little carriers. And then we actually engineer them with antibodies so that they can activate T cells and basically activate the T cells to kill the cancer cells.”

Han didn’t always want to go into cancer research. She originally wanted to pursue zoology research, but her goals changed when her mother was diagnosed with a tumor.

Wendy Benson, president of Centennial Academy, said that when it comes to the girls, “the word that comes to mind is 'wow.'

Benson said she is extremely proud of what the two have accomplished.

“These are two incredible young ladies who are very modest but will certainly be people to watch in the future.”
