by Christian Tubadeza

BANGUED, Abra – Abrenian Meljon Viste won awards in the 6th World Innovative Technology (WIT) Challenge 2019 in Griffith University, Gold Coast Australia.

Viste, a grade 10 student of the Abra High School, bagged the bronze award in the Symposium Category with his garbage collector and sorter (GCS-Bot) and a silver award in the Innovative Technology Category with his invention that is significant in disaster resilience.

Viste was among the 18 Filipino students who represented the country at the WIT held Oct. 25 and 26 and participated in by more than 100 students from Taiwan, Thailand, Korea, and Australia.

His GCS-Bot is equipped with sensors that enable the machine to determine a plastic or metal trash.

He said that his inspiration of creating a robot that picks and sorts trash is the current state of environment.

“I want to help in the protection and conservation of our environment,” he said.

Meljon said that the competition engineers and judges noted his works as “professionally done.”

Engr. John Viste, Meljon’s father, said that his son’s hobby is expensive but he supports him by supplying all electronic materials that he needs create his projects and inventions.

Viste has represented the country in various robotics competitions overseas.
