Automated Page-Replacing Contrivance


Automated Page-Replacing Contrivance

Christopher plays the viola. He has performed in the Julliard Pre-College Orchestra and won the 1995 Julliard Annual Award for Music. Christopher’s invention allows a musician to turn pages of music without interruption of the performance. It operates by means of a foot pedal which, when depressed, drops the front sheet of music, allowing the next page to be viewed.

The Automated Page-Replacing Contrivance won the 1993 Duracell/NSTA Scholarship Competition. Christopher plans to attend Harvard this fall but has not decided on his major.
