Three Rhoades students – current 8th grader Tejas Ravi (pictured) and recent graduates Arjun Chatha and Bhadra Rupesh – were selected as members of the Top 300 MASTERS in the 2020 Broadcom MASTERS®.
Broadcom MASTERS® (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering for Rising Stars), a program of Society for Science & the Public, is the premier middle school science and engineering fair competition, inspiring the next generation of scientists, engineers and innovators who will solve the grand challenges of the 21st century and beyond.
Our students’ projects were titled:
Fall Detection: Using Artificial Intelligence to Help the Elderly
The Effects of Various Wavelengths on Rod Activity
Evaluating Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms in the Correlation of Phenotypes to Type 2 Diabetes
This honor places them among a select group of 300 middle school science and engineering projects in the US from 3,476 entrants. The next step in the Broadcom MASTERS takes place later this month when 30 finalists will be selected from the Top 300 MASTERS®.
Congratulations to Tejas, Arjun, and Bhadra on this outstanding achievement!
