This year, there are more than 628 projects which already have won
first-place at their local school science fairs, representing the best of
student research. The more than 815 students who have advanced to this
districtwide regional competition will be judged by Georgia professionals
and scientists who will assess them on scientific quality, accuracy,
creativity, and experimental design.
Several high school student researchers will have the opportunity to participate in the “Distinguished Research Symposium,” from 3:30-5:45 p.m., which provides students a forum to share their research with the community. Guests are invited to hear from the following Gwinnett students as they present their original research to the public:
From Collins Hill High:
· Aksal Vashi (12th grader)
“Waste-Based Runoff Pollutant Biosorptive Permeable Barriers”
From South Gwinnett High:
· Sarah Dejene (12th grader), Hassan Qureshi (12th grader), and Justin Ikara (12th grader)
From Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science, and Technology:
· Simran Modi (11th grader)
“Novel Antibiotic Targets: Proteins Involving Degradation of mRNA Based on 2’3’-cNMPs in E. coli Over-Expressing HigB”
The high school and middle school students who earn first place at the district level competition will move to the next round -- the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair-- which will be held in Athens in late March. The top projects then qualify for the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, May 10-15, in Pittsburgh.
