Intel Science Talent Search 2010 Finalists highlights video of their week in Washington, DC
Intel STS Finalist Erika DeBenedictis answers questions about her project "Traveling the Interplanetary Superhighway: An Autonomous Spacecraft Navigation System" during the STS Public Day. Two days later, she was awarded First Place in the 2010 Intel STS, the nation's oldest and most prestigious science research competition for high school students. Video interview by www.Cogito.org
Intel Science Talent Search 2010 Winners Announced
Erika DeBenedictis, 18, of Albuquerque, NM, with her project developing a software navigation system to help improve spacecraft travel through the solar system.
David Liu, 18, of Saratoga, Calif., with his project on developing a system to recognize and understand digital aerial images to identify hazards, buried oil pipelines and more.
Akhil Mathew, 18, of Madison, NJ, with his math project on Deligne categories, a setting for studying a wide range of algebraic structures with ties to theoretical physics.
Maximal Densities of High-Dimensional Sphere Packings: Kate, 18, studied how closely identical spheres can be packed together. This work is of interest to chemists studying super-cooled matter and to cryptologists in search of error-correcting codes.
Relationships Between Oncologist Gender, Participatory Decision Making, Anxiety and Breast Cancer Care: Kevin, 18, studied how patient-physician relationships are related to disparities in urban breast cancer treatment. His project was one of the first studies to examine factors related to low standard care rates in the US and highlighted the importance of ensuring patients and physicians are informed about the benefits of radiotherapy.
Female Mating Patterns and Mate Quality in the Dengue Vector Mosquito, Aedes aegypti: Lori, 18, studied female mosquito mating patterns in an attempt to reduce cases of dengue fever and other mosquito borne diseases. By mating regular mosquitoes with ones that have gone through gene therapy so they cant carry diseases, the research team Lori worked with is seeking to eradicate disease-spreading mosquitoes.
Analyzing the Clustering of Point Sources in the 74 MHz VLSS Survey: Through his research, John, 18, computes a quantitative clustering of galaxies in a frequency relevant to the 21 centimeter radiation from neutral hydrogen from the dark ages of the universe. The application of his research will be realized when future scientists create computer simulations of the foreground sky, providing a more accurate understanding of the world we live in.
Application of Hydrogel Nanoparticles for Early Lyme Disease Diagnosis: Temple, 18, conducted research on the application of hydrogel nanoparticles for early Lyme disease diagnosis. Her research provides a means to reduce the number of chronic cases of Lyme disease, thus saving many people from the associated complications. A clinical trial is being planned.
Differentiation of Mouse Embryonic Stem Cells into Retinal Pigment Epithelium Cells in Culture: Eighteen year old Yifans research is in the field of retinal development and stem cell differentiation. He hopes this work will culminate in the near future in the transplantation of stem cell-derived retinal cells as a cure for ocular diseases.
The Double Life of hTERT: Identification of a Novel Function and an Explanation of the Mechanism Involving the Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor: Linda, 18, studies the effects of turning off a gene that codes for a protein called hTERT. She found that silencing the hTERT gene could reverse drug resistance in breast cancer cells and reduce the capability of breast cancer cells to migrate.
Deligne Categories and Representation Theory in Complex Rank: For his project, Akhil, 18, investigated Etingofs mathematical program of representation theory in complex rank using categorical methods. Since middle school, he had shown a keen interest in algebra and algebraic geometry and this project allowed him to further understand how he could apply the techniques of algebraic geometry, representation theory and category theory.
A Novel Chemical Synthesis for greater than 1 µm square Graphene Sheets: Paul, 17, studied and developed a new and innovative synthesis method for graphene, the basic structural element of graphite, carbon nanotubes and fullerenes. In the past, he has also researched nanoparticles in toothpaste and devised a simple method to create comparatively large graphene sheets.
Meet the Heating Challenge in Dynamic Spraying of Nanoparticles: Sixteen year old Alice's research focuses on obtaining high temperature and high pressure gas to carry nanoparticles for coating purposes. Her project is part of larger research involving the deposition and compaction of nanoparticles to form coatings with superior quality over traditional coatings.
