Top Young Scientist Takes Science Project to Washington
Rohit Singh just started the ninth grade and the science project he did last year in middle school on "nano engineering of photon absorption" is launching his career in science and has him competing against some of the best in the field. The project he started in 8th grade to the capital. His is one of thirty projects chosen to compete in the "Society of Science and Public" search for science talent --that started with 7500 students throughout the nation.
Singh's project was complex but his purpose simple, "Fossil fuels are really bad they pollute the environment and they're almost gone so I wanted to focus on solar energy since it was limitless," says Singh.
while Rohit is a finalist in the competition, that could win him $20,000 dollars, there were two others from our area who were semi-finalists -Kim Belanger-Giguere now in Buchholz and Jeremy Liu who is also attending East Side.
