ROYERSFORD, PA – Spring-Ford Area High School senior Eash Aggarwal was selected as a semifinalist in the Intel Science Talent Search, the district announced Wednesday.
Aggarwal was one of only five semi-finalists in the state of Pennsylvania. Spring-Ford Area High School will soon count Aggarwal among its distinguished alumni as he has accepted early admission to the University of Pennsylvania.
The Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS) is the nation’s most prestigious pre-college science competition. Intel STS alumni have made extraordinary contributions to science and hold more than 100 of the world’s most coveted science and math honors, including the Nobel Prize and the National Medal of Science.
Students are selected based upon their scientific research and also on their overall potential as future leaders of the scientific community.
Intel STS recognizes 300 students as semifinalists each year and awards them and their schools $1,000 each. From that select pool, 40 finalists are then invited to Washington, DC in March to undergo final judging, display their work to the public, meet with notable scientists, and compete for $1,012,500 in awards, including the three top awards of $150,000 each.
