Florida High School Students Use RFID To Detect Guns Entering Buildings

At the Scheck Hillel Community Day School in Miami, Fla., three high school freshmen were recently assigned a capstone project in their STEM class that challenged them to use technology to solve a real-life problem. Esther Benasayag, Albert Wolak and Abraham Woldenberg looked to the headlines for inspiration, and they immediately recognized the issue of the day — school shootings. In an effort to "save lives," as the students put it, they turned to radio frequency identification technology. Benasayag, Wolak and Woldenberg figured they could somehow use RFID to alert schools to guns that come through their doors. Woldenberg specifically remembered one ski trip he took where RFID chips were used in lift tickets.
