Brendan Egan, Anand Gadicherla, and Anish Ghosh from the Providence Day School Class of 2027 won the regional eCYBERMISSION competition for their project eGarbage Sorters and presented live as part of the eCYBERMISSION National Judging and Educational Event Showcase on Friday, June 25, 2021. They were one of 20 national finalist teams that advanced in the 19th annual eCYBERMISSION competition.
This project, completed under the guidance of faculty advisor Mark Bartholet, aims to create a garbage sorter to help save animals in the ocean since garbage thrown into the ocean can cause them harm.
