California Science and Engineering Fair Recognition
After qualifying for the state competition through the Greater San Diego Science and Engineering Fair in March, several Bishop’s students earned awards at the state level in April.
Michael Zeng ’22 received the second place award in the Senior Division Electronics & Electromagnetics category with his project “Development of Autonomous Mobile Robotic Platform with Novel Agility and Efficiency Capabilities”. His project was sponsored by Mr. Heldt and he also received guidance from Dr. Jaiclin with the visual interface component of his project.
Jeffrey Wang ’21 received fourth place in the Senior Division Computational Systems & Analysis category with his project “A Systematic Method For Identifying Significant Changes in 3D Genome Compartmentalization Across Multiple Cell Types.” Jeffrey’s advisor is Dr. Pelletier.
Kayley Xu ’27 received the fourth place award in the Junior Division Materials Science category with her project “Cooling Straw.” Ms. Cummings is Kayley’s science teacher.
With nearly 900 selected projects from all over California competing in the California Science and Engineering Fair and every category only awarding one winner for each of the first through fourth place, these awards are quite a recognition of the hard work these students have been putting into their projects all year.
The Bishop’s School is an independent, coeducational college-preparatory day school for students in grades six through twelve who live throughout San Diego County. Founded in 1909, the School is affiliated with the Episcopal church.
