— Two North Carolina students from Cary’s Green Hope High School are among 24 teams nationwide who are regional winners in the Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision competition.

Farihah Ahmed and Daljinder Bhangoo imagined a technological solution that would allow doctors and law enforcement agencies to “decode thoughts, skills, and motor actions by converting blood frequencies from the blood oxygenated levels of the brain to form pixilated images.”

Their entry was one of more than 4,300 nationwide. The regional winners will be narrowed to a pool of national finalists in May and the winners announced in June. Each member of the four first-prize teams will earn a U.S. Savings Bond worth $10,000.
