Outstanding innovation and creativity were on display at the 2017 CIJE West Region Girls High School Engineering Conference on May 18th at the Westside JCC in Los Angeles. Students from Meira Academy, Palo Alto, the Torah High School, San Diego, Yeshiva University Girls High School, and Valley Torah Girls High School, Los Angeles, knocked it out of the park with their design engineered devices. These devices solved problems that ranged from waking sleepy drivers to a device that helped blind people learn the alphabet.
The winning Project of the Year was a project from Valley Torah Girls, was developed by Adina Ziv, Meital Shafgi, Aviya Gaviel and titled “CS2 Car Sleeping.” Their project focused on a sensor that detected when drivers were getting sleepy and once activated would wake them up using a device that vibrates. With 20% of road accidents linked to fatigue, this project has the potential to save lives.

Valley Torah came in 2nd place in the Columbus Baseball Invitational. After winning three games, we lost 1-0 against Frisch in the Championship Game (this is the 9th year in a row that Frisch has won). In this video, our trophy is presented to Max Leibowitz, team captain.
Our star pitcher, Dovie Solomon, won the MVP award for the Tournament.
A walk-off hit by Max Leibowitz leads to a win against Ida Crown and a trip to the championship game vs. Frisch.
