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
