Holy Trinity School announced the winners of its 7th and 8th grade Trimester Projects, a Shark Tank-like competition in which students present their product ideas, which then are voted on by their peers. The winners were:

  • Emma Jules (8A), who presented Kleanumal products -- wipes, masks and paper towels that kill COVID. (See video below.)
  • Anna Maliakal (8G), who designed a flying car so that normal civilians could travel the world. ("It would be less expensive and a lot faster. And you could travel when you please, not according to a set schedule," she explained.) Anna explained how she would work with a design team, manufacturing team, software team, reliability (testing) team, and a marketing team to bring the car to fruition. 
  • James Smith (7B), whose company would create COVID home test kits so that people wouldn't have to wait in line at doctors' offices and test centers and you. It would be convenient and give results quickly.
  • Kate Robinson (7H), who invented Standing on Light, which converts video games to real life through holograms. "I was bored during the pandemic and I wished I could be part of a video game. By using it, you could be active and not just a couch potato," Kate said.
