THREE pupils from a Tamil school in Taman Melawati, Kuala Lumpur have won gold medals with their invention of a soil quality sensor at an innovation competition.

The International Young Scien­tists Innovation Exhibition (IYSIE) 2019 was held in Kuala Lumpur between July 8 and 12.

The winners were Yuvika Maha­ga­napathi, nine, Kailesh Sara­vanan, 10, and Kavisha Naga­rajan, 10.

It was their first time taking part in such a competition. They had worked on the project for about three months. About RM500 were spent to develop the sensor.

The tool is able to check the soil to determine what crops or plants would be suitable for it.

There were about 600 participants from 10 countries including Iran, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka, Singapore and Taiwan.

They claimed that unidentified lorries had been dumping all sorts of rubbish in the neighbourhood.

This has caused a stench and the residents are worried about its impact on their health.
