Innovations Lab at Boys Div.

With the arrival of the state of the art GlowForge Pro, the new Innovations Lab is now complete.  Thanks to a grant received from the Legacy Heritage Fund and matching funds from our donors, we have converted an under-utilized student lounge into a dynamic, multi-purpose Innovations Lab.
Besides the cutting edge technology of the GlowForge Pro, other equipment acquisitions include 3-D Printers, wireless projectors, new laptop computers and all the auxiliary accessories necessary to make the Innovations Lab a dynamic educational hub of the Chandler Campus.
The lab was completed in time to host new elective offerings for our students, such as a Computer Coding Class and other Technology Innovations courses which will be offered in the fall

Valley Torah Girls Win 4 out of 6 CIJE Awards

Freshman Class 1Outstanding 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.

Winners from the other categories were:

  • Award for Best Social Value, “The Wheel Awake,” by Edan Green and Elinor Shalom, Valley Torah Girls High School
  • Award for Outstanding Engineering Achievement, “Follow PET” by Toma Riskin, Tehila Nissim, Ita Rice, Meira Academy
