A sixth grade student has developed a project to decrease body temperature with pieces of aluminium alloy used in computer cooling systems.
Goksel Mert, a student at the Sidika Akdemir Center of Science and Art in the western Turkish province of Izmir for gifted children, invented an antipyretic tape made of aluminium alloy which could decrease body temperature by 1.2 degree in a minute.
Mert's project based on antipyretic effect of aluminium alloy on human body, could help prevention of febrile convulsions especially in infants.
His teacher Eda Tuven said, "under the project, we placed pieces of aluminium alloy on a bandana or a wristband. When we put them on capillary vessels in temple or wrists, they decreased body temperature quickly."
