Two graduating high school students represent Hungary at the US World Science Championships with an outstanding science project

The International Science and Engineering Fair, the world championship of science competitions, will start on May 14 in Los Angeles, USA, where Hungary will be represented by two high school graduates, Sjelvester Laskay and Adam Vajda, competing against nearly 1,800 high school students. Students from different countries of the world with total fees amounting to about 9 million dollars. The Hungarian delegation was headed by Zofia Bazák, Deputy Managing Director of the Hungarian Innovation Association.

Janos Bacox, Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the National Olympiad of Science and Innovation, stressed that the research project developed by the two outstanding students represents outstanding quality, can be applied in various fields, and can contribute significantly to the development of science.

Both Hungarian competitors won prizes at the 32nd National Science and Innovation Olympiad (OTIO), and with their excellent performances there, qualified for the US World Championships.

Zelviszter Laskay, student at Mihaly Fazekas High School in Debrecen, “Design of a traction inverter using silicon carbide semiconductors.” He represents our country with his project which has already won the Special Prize of the European Championship last September.

Szilveszter has developed a traction-optimized SiC-MOSFET-based inverter. For supply, the inverter runs on 230V. It can be ideally used as a general purpose frequency converter and its power density is 60% higher than a commercially available frequency converter of similar performance.

SiC inverter – as an innovative device that increases energy efficiency – can be an appropriate response to challenges related to changes in the economic and environmental environment.

Adam Vajda, student at ELTE Radnót Miklós High School “Estimation of key points of the human body based on FMCW radar images.” With his project, whose main topic is the practical application of radar-based situational recognition methods, such as in the fight against terrorism, during rescue operations after natural disasters, or in improving the reliability and safety of autonomous vehicles.

The main advantage of using radar imaging compared to traditional camera-based methods is that the radar is not affected by vision and objects that may cause visual obstruction.

The International Science and Engineering Exhibition is a major milestone for young talents and researchers from different countries of the world, as they have the opportunity to present their research work and the results of their research to the general public.

The outstanding scientific projects of Szilveszter Laskai and Ádám Vajda are supported by the Hungarian Innovation Association, and at the same time they are confident that the young Hungarian researchers can also achieve international success at the World Championships.
