Teenagers from Ukraine become prizewinners of Intel International Science and Engineering Fair
Joining UT are Phuong Anh, Oleksandr Buzin and Mykhailo Lytovchenko, prizewinners of the international scientific-technological contest of young scientists Intel ISEF 2016, who were selected on the IntelTECHO and IntelEKO national contests. They shared their life stories after the victory and their plans for future.
Phuong Anh, a graduate of Cherkassy Lyceum of Physics and Mathematics, dedicated her research to mathematical polygonal numbers, where she investigated the properties of such numbers and was able to derive a formula for finding similar elements for different sequences. The problem hadn't been solved even by eminent mathematicians, but Anh succeeded.
Oleksandr Buzin, a student of Kyiv Lyceum, created a framework for developing 3D objects for internet browsers, which is pretty useful for computer engineers and website content creators.
Mykhailo Lytovchenko, a second-year student of Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, created a wave renewable energy invention, which generates electricity and can even desalt sea water. The idea to use wave energy has been articulated for many years, however, this project finds a proper solution how to make the idea real.
Anh, Oleksandr and Mykhailo felt extreme excitement about their victory. As they say, their families were first, who supported them in the competition. The young talents plan to further develop their projects and start discovering new fields for research.
