News | Holy Trinity High School Honor Students Develop Suicide Prevention Bracelet

Freshmen honor students Jonathan Vega, 15, and Jelani Jackson, 14, at Holy Trinity High School have developed such a bracelet that alerts and tracks a person’s emotional well-being.

According to the students, Aegis (defined as shield or protection in mythological terms) is designed to “track heart rate, aggression, sleep, and more”. Once the project is finalized and made available one day, the bracelet will be accompanied by an app that will alert family or friends when a person is close to doing something extreme. To describe Aegis, the duo used the words “safekeeper, strength, and secure”.

Out of 2000 teams, The Aegis project won NFTE’s (Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship)World Series of Innovation, earning both Jonathan and Jelani $1000 each.
