Lauren Hodge in the 13-14 age group. Lauren studied the effect of different marinades on the level of potentially harmful carcinogens in grilled chicken.
Naomi Shah in the 15-16 age group. Naomi endeavored to prove that making changes to indoor environments that improve indoor air quality can reduce people’s reliance on asthma medications.
Shree Bose in the 17-18 age group. Shree discovered a way to improve ovarian cancer treatment for patients when they have built up a resistance to certain chemotherapy drugs.
Shree Bose (center of picture) also won the overall Grand Prize, which comes with a $50,000 scholarship, a trip to the Galapagos Islands, and an internship at CERN. Shah and Hodge also won scholarships and internships at Google and LEGO. Link -via Geeks Are Sexy
Shree's work sounds a little fantastic. One wonders how much help the kids had, with such a prize at stake.
And I agree about the lego trophies. ta-cky.
