Alex Han, Gr. 12 and Revanth Kosaraju, Gr. 10, received special recognition at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), held May 9-14 in downtown San Jose. Han won a $4,000 scholarship from the U.S. Navy and a trip to the London International Youth Science Forum, taking place July 28-Aug. 11. Kosaraju received a $500 award from the American Psychological Association.
The ISEF featured 1,600 finalists from nearly 60 countries. Han and Kosaraju won the privilege to appear at the ISEF at the Synopsys Science and Technology Championship in March; it was the first time since 2007 that Harker had two finalists representing the school. “It is a really big deal to win an award at ISEF since these represent the best projects from around the world,” said upper school science teacher Kate Schafer.
