Six Harker seniors have been named top 300 scholars in the 2022 Regeneron Science Talent Search, the most for any California school. Alice Feng, Alex Hu, Rishab Parthasarathy, Sasvath Ramachandran, Aimee Wang and Emily Zhou were among 300 high school seniors selected from 1,804 entries received in this year’s competition. Each submitted original research projects that were the result of months of work.
“In a year where our students, as juniors, had few opportunities to conduct research, they persevered, letting their curiosity and dedication overcome all the challenges of our uncertain times,” said Anita Chetty, science department chair.
Each of the scholars will receive a cash award of $2,000, and each school with a student scholar will be awarded $2,000 to fund STEM programs. On Jan. 20, 40 of the top 300 scholars will be named finalists, who will then participate in the final stage of the competition, which takes place March 10-16.
