Unmasking CyberSecurity Vulnerabilities in Direct and Transitive OSS Dependencies

By: Sebastian A.Year: 2024School: Northwood HighGrade: 10Science Teacher: Angie Oliveras In today’s digital landscape, where open-source software (OSS) plays a pivotal role in powering everything from entertainment platforms to critical infrastructure, cybersecurity has become a pressing concern. The widespread use of OSS brings numerous benefits, including cost-effectiveness and collaborative development, but it also introduces vulnerabilities, often lurking within

It’s All About Offense

By: Eli L.Year: 2023School: Fairmont Private Schools, North Tustin CampusGrade: 8Science Teacher: Joshua Riturban Baseball has always been a sport characterized by excitement, and excitement often stems from offense. However, the game has evolved over the years, and changes in environmental factors can significantly impact batting statistics in Major League Baseball (MLB). This experiment seeks to answer the

Evaluation of CAPTCHA to ensure accessibility in the Digital Age

By: Sebastian A.Year: 2023School: Northwood HighGrade: 9Science Teacher: Cathleen Zelesky In an increasingly digital world, it is crucial to ensure that everyone, including individuals with disabilities, can access and utilize digital tools, technologies, and websites seamlessly. However, conventional CAPTCHA systems, designed to differentiate between humans and spam bots, often pose challenges for users with disabilities. Sebastian, a talented

Non-Invasive Stress Monitoring from Video for Semi-Autonomous Systems

By: Akshata T.Year: 2022School: Aliso Niguel High SchoolGrade: 11Science Teacher: Robert Jansen Stress detection through video is a fundamentally important concept. As autonomous vehicles become more commonplace and human alertness subsides, instantaneous detection of physiological features has a prominent role in ensuring human safety in dire situations. Autopilot or other safety mechanisms can be enabled

Anja – The Third Eye

Project “Anja” (the third eye, in Sanskrit language) is meant to help visually impaired people recognize day to day objects. The students used a Raspberry Pi, a Pi Camera, an external speaker and Python code to enable four capabilities (visual recognition, artificial intelligence, text to speech and speech to action) to work together. The Raspberry

The Structure of the Positive Monoid of Integer-Valued Polynomials Evaluated at an Algebraic Number

By: Andrei M.Year: 2021School: University HighGrade: 12Science Teacher: Tim Smay Motivated by the characterization of symmetric monoidal functors between Deligne categories, the additive monoid R_+(x) is defined as the set of all nonnegative integer linear combinations of binomial coefficients (x choose n) for nonnegative integers n. Andrei’s project was concerned with the inquiry into the


By: Justin L.Year: 2021School: Troy HighGrade: 10Science Teacher: Kevin Jones AIVIS is an online application that allows for easy creation of an Artificial Neural Network. Artificial neural networks (ANNs), usually simply called neural networks (NNs), are computing systems inspired by the biological neural networks that constitute animal brains. An ANN is based on a collection of

Assessment of Breast Density Using Unsupervised Variational Auto-Encoders

By: Su K.Year: 2021School: Capistrano Valley HighGrade: 11Science Teacher: Cheryl Johnson AbstractAbout 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast density is a strong indicator for breast cancer. Women with extremely dense breasts have a sixfold greater risk of developing breast cancer. This study is about the assessment of breast

AI Archery Coach: Using Computer Vision and LSTM Neural Networks to Evaluate Archery Form

By: Dylan S.Year: 2021School: University HighGrade: 10Science Teacher: Valerie Thompson This project explores the development of a two-stage computer vision and LSTM neural network program that can assist archers by giving them an evaluation on their release. The computer vision function was designed specifically to replace a wrist-worn device developed in a prior project. Computer
