Winners of the 2022 BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition (BTYSTE), Aditya Kumar and Aditya Joshi, have scooped first place prize at this year’s European Union Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS) with their project entitled ‘A New Method of Solving the Bernoulli Quadrisection Problem’.
To celebrate their brilliant achievement, BT Ireland have decided to extend the entry submission deadline for this year’s BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition 2023, with completed submissions now being accepted up until Monday 3rd, October at 5pm.
This new deadline will allow as many young people as possible to showcase their STEM skills at the most prestigious exhibition in Europe. Participating students will be in the running to win over 200 prizes across all four categories and age groups. The overall winners will take away the top prize of €7,500 and go on to represent Ireland at EUCYS in Brussels 2023, where they will be in with the chance of taking home Ireland’s 18th first place win.
Aditya Kumar and Aditya Joshi both attributed their EUCYS success to the support from the BTYSTE organisers in the months following their win last January. Both students from Synge Street, Dublin, they represented Ireland at EUCYS 2022 which took place in Leiden, Netherlands from September 13-18, facing stiff competition from hundreds of students representing EU member states and other guest countries, including USA, Canada, and Ukraine.
The Synge Street CBS students triumphed with their project ‘A New Method of Solving the Bernoulli Quadrisection Problem’ which proposed a new approach to a mathematical problem unsolved since the 17th century and put forward ways in which it could be applied to contemporary engineering challenges.
BTYSTE Entries must be from second-level students aged between 12 and 19 years. For more information on the BTYSTE 2023, please visit www.btyoungscientist.com
