We were delighted to discover that there are three students hailing from Massachusetts who will be part of the Intel Science Talent Search. This prestigious science fair is open to high school seniors. Forty finalists are selected from 300 semifinalists and 1800 entrants from across the United States. This year, the finalists hail from 14 states, making 3 finalists from Massachusetts even more notable. They will compete in March in Washington, D.C.
Of particular note for us here at Massachusetts Science Fair, one of those finalists, David Seong, is an alumnus of our own events. In 2013, Seong placed second as a junior at the Fair, with this project: Novel Use of Mutant Huntingtin Haplotype 3'UTR Sequence to Discover miRNAs Targeting Mutant Huntingtin Gene Causing Huntington's Disease.
Total prizes at the Intel Science Talent Search total over $600,000, and alumni from these events boast an impressive array of achievements in science and technology. We wish the Massachusetts finalists the best of luck!
