Aurelia’s invention is an alarm app that won’t turn off until you properly wake up; you have to complete one of two tasks to turn the sound off.
The alarm, dubbed Wakey Wakey, also has a unique sound made up of the 10 most annoying sounds in the world.
Aurelia Wilberforce, of Lincoln High School, was 13 when she entered Bright Sparks last year, taking out the Christchurch Best Concept junior award.
“ASB Bright Sparks was one of my most favourite things I have ever been part of and I am so pleased I took part,” she says.
Since entering Wakey Wakey in ASB Bright Sparks, she’s been busy refining her invention, adding new features and making it more user-friendly.
“ASB Bright Sparks gave me more motivation to continue with projects down the line of STEM, and to see it in a new light, perhaps something more than a hobby for me.”
