The winner of the BT Young Scientist Award earlier this year – Castleknock College’s Alexander Amini who developed a Tennis Sensor Data Analysis tool – has picked up the top prize in the 23rd European Union Contest for Young Scientists.
Amini’s science project was in the top three selected by an international jury from among the 87 projects from 37 countries in the EU contest. The other two projects are from Switzerland and Lithuania. The prize winners – all under the age of 21 years – will share prize money totalling € 51,500.
Teams from Germany, the UK and Bulgaria were awarded second prizes. Third prizes went to teams from Norway, Poland and the UK.
Alexander Amini’s prize winning project called “Tennis Sensor Data Analysis” is an automated system for macro motion refinement.
