Jolene is currently a student at Boon Lay Secondary School. She is studying combined Physics and Chemistry, combined Geography and Social Studies, and Computing as her elective. She is interested in hands-on activities and also learning code and different types of mechanisms. Jolene wishes to be able to eventually work with Artificial Intelligence (AI) that will be able to benefit the world through people’s daily lives.
My project concept is to benefit those in the sports industry. My prototype is called Shoolect. It is a prototype that helps tennis ball players. Shoolect is a machine that will help to collect tennis balls from the ground and also launch the balls to players in the court while training. I was inspired to create this prototype as I take up volleyball as a hobby, and I realised how inconvenient it is for players to constantly have to run to collect the ball in a big court. Hence, I am working towards my goal of creating a machine that will provide ease and convenience to tennis players.
