JFKS students Max Hentges and Leopold Aschenbrenner won the Berlin-wide “Jugend forscht” competition with the best interdisciplinary project. They developped a system for the surveillance, warning and prediction of fine dust in Berlin. It measures the exposure in real-time through a comprehensive network of self-made sensors. Users can check the up-to-date results through a smartphone app; predictions and warnings can be sent through a notification service.
They will participate in the 51st “Jugend forscht” German finals on May 26-29, 2016 in Paderborn.
Congratulations Max and Leopold!
