Young Georgian students to visit CERN after NASA
17 November, 2016
Three young Georgian inventors will travel to the place every scientist is dreaming to visit at least once in a lifetime. On the border between France and Switzerland, near Geneva, there is a nuclear research center called European Organization for Nuclear Research or Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire (CERN) in French and this year (from November 21 to 26) it will be visited by Vakho Kontridze, Giorgi Margiani and Beka Mikadze, together with other winners of Republican Olympiad.

‘To
visit CERN at least once in a lifetime is a dream of every scientist in the world. So, for me it is very important. We will receive advices and recommendations on our projects there’, - Vakho Kontridze tells ambebi.ge.

The name of the project this group of young individuals are working on is called ‘Harvester-Recycler of Futile Electromagnetic Energy Stream, One in Five’. With this invention, Kontridze and the members of his group became the winner of young scientists’ competition called Leonardo da Vinci that took place last year.

‘We have created a tool that produces electricity, has a wi-fi receiver, TV receiver, radio receiver and can also act as a heater to boil liquids. We have decided to take this project to CERN’, - says Kontridze who is not only the winner of the above mentioned competition, but has also received the Grand Prix and this year’s event and accordingly, he will travel to CERN next year as well.

‘Our latest project refers to the innovational technology of increasing the efficiency factor of a solar battery. Generally, solar batteries face three types of problems: overheating, emission of insufficient energy and instability in the face of rain or snow. We began to work on these problems and our experiment was successful. We form silicon coat and it will help us to resolve all the problems and the efficiency factor of a solar battery increases by 5%’, - Kontridze says.

This project became the winner of yet another competition called ‘Millenium Innovation’ and the most distinguished participants were sent to NASA.

Now, before traveling to CERN, these young inventors will first go to the USA and visit Intel ISEF exhibition.
