The Siemens Foundation established the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology in 1999. The Competition is the nation’s premier science research competition for high school students and seeks to promote excellence by encouraging students to undertake individual or team research projects. It fosters intensive research that improves students’ understanding of the value of scientific study and informs their consideration of future careers in these disciplines. Scholarships for winning projects range from $1,000 to $100,000.
This year, three San Diego students made it to the finals and received a $25,000 Team Scholarship award. The recipients are
- Anlin Zhang, Canyon Crest Academy
- Rachana Madhukara, Canyon Crest Academy
- Kevin Ren, Torrey Pines High School
