Earlier this year, a close friend of mine passed away due to a debilitating form of brain cancer.He mentored me for GCSE french for 2.5 years and was just about to start life at the University of Birmingham when he passed away on 25th September.
Now a little bit about myself. I attend Queen Mary's Grammar School and i am in Year 12.I am an avid tech enthusiast, have six years’ worth of technical knowledge under my belt and even built my first gaming computer a few years ago..
I wanted to do something involving my passion in computers and technology. I have come up with the innovative idea of combining charity, cancer research and PC building all in to one package I have come up with the idea of building two computer systems. The first system will be used in a raffle giveaway. The money will be raised by selling raffle tickets at my school. All the money raised will be donated to cancer charities. I will be able to raise hundreds or even thousands of pounds though the raffle. The second computer system will be directly involved in cancer research by completing folding tasks. Folding is a method of using distributed computing for disease and cancer research.
Here is a link to Stanford University's folding program:
I want to know what you all think of this idea
