Three first-graders at Kingsley School, Maggie Huerta, Nina Kaiser, and Mackenzie Greco, their teacher/coach Karen Reid, and parent mentor Joel Huerta are one of 24 teams that are regional winners of the 2013 Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision competition.  

Martin Schopp, vice presidentgGeneral manager for Toshiba Business Solutions, Inc., presented award certificates and HD camcorders to members of the team at an awards ceremony held at the school on March 22. He also presented the school with a Toshiba laptop that the team will use to design a website to promote their project for national judging.

The winning project submitted by the first-grade team is a "Lice-A-Nator" that is imagined to make the problems associated with lice a thing of the past. The "Lice-A-Nator" is a computerized hairbrush that uses special bristles and processors that detect and, using tiny on-board lasers, eradicate lice.

Kingsley’s class also had a runner – up team comprised of Claire Perkoski, Spencer George, William Sieland and Kaitlin Maji who conceptualized a super flosser to address future dental hygiene issues.
