Two Schreiber High School seniors were named semifinalists in the prestigious Intel Science Telent Search.
Drew Feldman, 17, qualified for his study, "Elastic Modulus Reconstructions from Sparse Displacement Measurements." And Minah Kim, 17, was recognized for her study, "Inhibition of the FabI Enoyl-ACP Reductase from Burkholderia pseudomallei."
The semifinalists for 2013 were selected from among 1,712 entrants representing 467 high schools in 42 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, and two U.S. overseas schools.
Each of the 300 students named a semifinalist will receive a $1,000 award for his or her outstanding research. To recognize excellence in teaching, each school will receive $1,000 for each semifinalist named. This award is used to further excellence in science, math, and/or engineering education.
From this group of 300 Intel STS 2013 semifinalists, 40 finalists will be chosen to attend the Intel Science Talent Institute in Washington, D.C. from March 7–13, 2013. During their trip to Washington, these finalists will undergo further judging and share $630,000 in awards.
