3 Stratford students, 3 projects in the 2023 BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition

NEWS / 9 January 2023

This year Stratford College has three students who will be competing with their individual projects in the 2023 BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition from Wednesday 11th January to Saturday 14th January. This is a fantastic achievement!

We have two third year students – Joseph Mudrak and Liam Fuller – who are competing for the first time; and we have Ayush Tambde in 6th year who is competing for the fourth time in a row (having won 4 prizes in the last two years).

Joseph is learning Japanese and has developed a hybrid Japanese typewriter that can print Japanese characters to a printer. There are still some industries that use typewritten documentation, e.g. insurance. You’ll be able to try it out for yourself at the BTYSTE! [Intermediate Technology category]

Liam’s project is to commercialise robotic arms so that smaller companies can use 3D printed robotic arms to automate their manufacturing. Liam has created a robotic arm with servo motors! [Intermediate Technology category]

Ayush’s project models and simulates the mechanisms of cancerous breast cells to see how they change using quantum computing, and more critically how to control them. [Senior Ecological and Biological category]

We wish each of them the very best of luck this week – they have done us proud already.
Ms O'Kelly

Stratford hosts 5th Year Assembly and special BT Young Scientist & Technology Assembly

The 5th Years ably hosted their Assembly on Tuesday 17th January. It was combined with a special BT Young Scientist & Technology Assembly where Ayush, Joseph and Liam spoke about their respective projects. Ayush explained the importance of his project in terms of breast cancer research and we now can see why he was awarded the Best Individual Project and Horizon Student Award for the overall best Biological & Ecological project at BTYSTE 2023. Liam and Joseph demonstrated their projects too and there was much interest! The finalists parents were invited to the assembly too.

Congratulations Ayush Tambde!! Best Individual Project 2023! And to our two 3rd Year Young Scientist Finalists!

Congratulations Ayush Tambde!! Best Individual Project 2023! And to our two 3rd Year Young Scientist Finalists!

Ayush Tambde, aged 17 and in sixth year in Stratford College won the prize for Best Individual, with his project, 'Analysis of single-cell proteomic data to understand the mechanisms of oncogenic transformation and how to control them'. 

Ayush also won the Horizon Student Award for the best overall Biological and Ecological project.

Contest judge Dr John Monahan said the project had “taken new protein biology approaches to relook at an important existing data set and come up with novel insights into potential treatments for these difficult to treat basal cell breast cancers”. [Irish Times]
