Filip Piękoś, a talented 16-year-old from Jarosław, Poland, has achieved remarkable success at the prestigious Regeneron ISEF 2023 competition held in Texas. Filip secured third place in the highly competitive “Embedded Systems” category. He was honored with a special award from the IEEE as well.
Filip’s innovative project, a programmable computer keyboard designed specifically for individuals with disabilities in their lower and upper limbs, earned him well-deserved recognition and a significant $600 reward. He was inspired by a friend facing challenges in operating a computer due to illness. So he aimed to address the issue of social exclusion arising from such limitations. His dedication and creativity shone through, making him deserving of this accolade.
