TAMS leads Texas in the national Intel Science Talent Search

TAMS logoTexas Academy of Mathematics and Science leads Texas in the premier science research competition with seven students from being named semifinalists in the 2011 Intel Science Talent Search.

The academy has more semifinalists than any other school in Texas. Nationwide, 300 students were named semifinalists from a pool of more than 1,700 applications.

Alumni of the competition have made extraordinary contributions to science and hold more than 100 of the world’s most coveted science and math honors, including seven Nobel Prizes and four National Medals of Science.

The semifinalists are:

Carolyn Bu, 17, for “Experimental Characterization and Mathematical Modeling of the Retention Behavior of Pharmaceutical and Illegal Drug Compounds”

Andrew Ding, 16, for “A Study of the Water/Single-Layer Graphite Interaction Using ccCA-ONIOM”

Jennifer Ding, 18, for “Estimating Volume Loss of the Gangotri Glacier in the Himalayas Using Remote Sensing and GIS”
