Guo awarded at Intel science, engineering fair

MADISON – Sophie Guo from James Clemens High School won third place and a cash award at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles. 

When classes resume in August, Guo will be a Jets senior.

“I placed third in my category of Embedded System, along with winning a cash prize of $1,000,” Guo said. “The Intel ISEF is the world’s largest pre-college scientific research event with about 1,700 participants who have qualified from all around the globe each year.”

The official name of Guo’s project was “Highly Sensitive E. coli Bacteria Detection through the Integration of Gold Nanodisk Plasmon Resonance and Antibody-Antigen Binding.”

Carol Bohatch, James Clemens science teacher, gave support to Guo during her research about E. coli bacteria.

Guo met and interacted with her fellow Alabama teammates who had entered their own projects. The Alabama youth had the opportunity to meet other aspiring engineers and scientists from around the world. Winners from Intel ISEF 2017 were announced on May 18 and 19.

A program of Society for Science & the Public, the Intel fair is the world’s largest international pre-college science competition. Each year, approximately 1,800 high school students from more than 75 countries, regions and territories can showcase their independent research and compete for an average of $4 million in prizes.

Intel ISEF unites these top young scientific minds, showcasing their talents on an international stage, where doctoral-level scientists review and judge their work. The Society for Science & the Public partners with Intel and dozens of other corporate, academic, government and science-focused sponsors who provide the support and awards for Intel ISEF.

Pittsburgh and Phoenix will host the Intel fair in 2018 and 2019. For more information, visit societyforscience.org.
