Nearly 600 students in Washington, Idaho, Montana and Alaska put together inspiring work at this year’s Holocaust Center for Humanity (HCH) contest. Out of all those entries, four Nikola Tesla STEM High School students placed in the top three. This year’s “Celebrating Life: 2022 Holocaust Writing, Art, and Film Contest,” put on by HCH, challenges students to explore the history and stories of the Holocaust.
Eastlake student named finalist in prestigious science and math competition
Christine Ye, a student from Eastlake High School (EHS), has been named a finalist in the 2022 Regneron Science Talent Search. The competition is the nation’s oldest, most prestigious science and math competition for high school seniors. It is hosted by Regneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
The 2022 finalists’ research projects span a diverse range of STEM-related subjects showcasing their knowledge and depth of passion for science.
Multiple students chose to explore the impact of COVID-19. Some students invented novel therapeutic tools, while others explored topics related to climate change and social and political issues. Christine’s project is titled: Inferring the Neutron Star Maximum Mass and Lower Mass Gap in Neutron Star-Black Hole Systems with Spin.
This program’s alumni include recipients of the world’s most notable science and math honors, including 13 Nobel Prizes and 22 MacArthur Foundation Fellowships, as well as the founders of many science-based companies, including Regeneron.
A second student from EHS was listed in the top 300 for this competition. Senior Audrey Gruian was nominated for her project entitled ALDIN: An Intelligent, Stereoscopic Aerial Olfactory System for Autonomous Odor Localization.
