A recent report says in recognition of their brilliant innovation to solve a pressing social issue, a team of Ajman University Engineering College students have been awarded the James Dyson National Award for Design Engineering. The James Dyson Award is an international design award that celebrates, encourages and inspires the next generation of design engineers. The winning students – Marwa Alshouli, Somaya Samra, Bashayer Alasfour and Shamma Hareb – were awarded for their solution entitled Shield, which uses technology in creative ways to identify and prevent child sexual abuse.
“Child sexual abuse has been reported up to 80,000 times a year and 1 out of 10 children will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. The inspiration behind Shield was to protect children around the world from going through this traumatising event with lasting lifetime effects. We aim to utilise technology to minimise occurrences of child sexual abuse by implementing an accurate yet simple system which protects children and establishes immediate contact with the parents in case of any violation,” said the winning AU students, explaining their project.
