Youth take center stage at International Science Fair

Youth take center stage at International Science Fair




This year's Intel International Science and Engineering fair in Los Angeles drew 1,700 students from around the globe to compete for $5 million in awards and scholarships.
17-year-old Zarin Rahman, is among the group of finalists. She submitted a study suggesting a link between the use of electronic devices and problems with weight management and sleep deprivation.
Zarin Rahman: “The award doesn’t really matter to me, but then, people will know who I am, read my project, and then I can spread my message and research further than I have been already."
Teacher Judith Vasquez is here on a field trip with students, she hopes they will be inspired to pursue careers in math and science, especially the young women.
Judith Vasquez: “Because science tends to be more of a boy thing, they’re more geared towards it and we want them to be exposed … equally exposed to everything."
Students compete in a variety of categories: behavioral sciences, medicine, and physics to name a few. Oftentimes, ideas presented here become reality.
Wendy Hawkins, Intel executive director: “Twenty percent of the students who come here either have already gotten a patent for their work or they’ve applied for patents, so they’re intending to go back and make these things real.”
One of those students is 15-year-old finalist Miriam Demasi. After reading about a 2003 earthquake that leveled a small town in Iran, she developed a new building material. She said her product is cheaper, stronger, and has a higher insulation value, which will result in less deforestation.
Miriam Demasi: “I haven’t implemented it yet but with the help of an aid organization getting it known to those people, I believe they would adopt it readily.”
This year's biggest prize worth $75,000, went to 15-year-old US student Nathan Han of Boston.
Nathan Han: “The goal of my project was to create a system that can predict the harmfulness of mutations in person anywhere in the person’s genome. So anywhere in their DNA.”
Han said he became interested in mutating genes after learning a family friend had been diagnosed with cancer. Diane Moses, VOA News, Los Angeles.
