Aditya Bora in D.C. as a Chief Science Officer
Aditya Bora, a junior at Johns Creek High School, was selected as one of the 3 students from Georgia to participate in the International Chief Science Officer (CSO) Summit in Washington, D.C. He will also be traveling to Nepal in December with the international director of the CSO program to hold a training institute for the first cohort of Nepali CSOs at one of the largest boarding schools in Nepal, Kavya.
The CSO program is run by the National Science Foundation and is active in the USA and 4 other countries. It seeks to enhance the workforce and employability skills of student CSOs and their peers and cultivate a pipeline of diverse STEM leaders prepared for college, careers, and civic engagement.
Aditya was a CSO last year, too, and founded a robotics team at a local elementary school. The team won several top awards at the state GA Tech competition.
This year in D.C., he met with leaders in science and technology and advocated for an increase in student input in STEM policy development. He also described his plan for taking the CSO program to Nepal to help one of the poorest countries in the world
