Each year students are invited to participate independently in sophisticated research projects that focus on STEM topics. Projects are presented and judged at the Lehigh Valley Science and Engineering Research Fair in March and top award winners go on to compete at the Delaware Valley Science Fair (DVSF), which is an affiliated fair for the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF).
This past week, seventh-grade students Michael Alchaer ‘23 and Okezue Bell ‘23 joined nearly 300 other middle school students from Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, and Delaware at DVSF.
Michael’s mathematics category research titled The Fibonacci Sequence And Its Use In The Stock Market earned an Honorable Mention award, as did Okezue’s computer science category research titled IoT: How Can It Change Our Daily Lives? Okezue was also awarded the John C. Sargent Jr. Memorial Scholarship.
Award winners from the Upper School included Isha Mohapatra ‘19, Second Place (Engineering); Rhea Malhotra ‘20, First Place (Biochemistry); Neil Deshmukh ‘20, First Place (Computer); and Neha Skandan ‘21, First Place (Mathematics).
We congratulate our young researchers as they continue to make us MA Proud!
