13 Jan BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition 2020
Solomon took part the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition (BTYSTE), for Dundalk Grammar School last week.
He is in second year and this is the second time he has represented the school at the BTYSTE.
His project is to help the visually impaired navigate their surroundings in a new innovative way.
He has developed a mobile app that links to Google maps that speaks directions and corrects the user if you move off a programmed route.
In addition to this he used 3D printing and his programming skills.
He assembled the required circuitry and he made a smart cane that has a vibrating handle which changes intensity based on the distance to obstacles.
Congratulations to Solomon for achieving 3rd place in his category (Junior individual in Technology).
Well done to his teacher Mr. Lynch also.
