Juliana Condoleo and Kaylie Hausknecht, both seniors at Lynbrook High School are among 300 semifinalists in the 2019 Regeneron Science Talent Search, one of the nation’s most prestigious science and math competitions for high school seniors. As two of the 300 top scholars in the competition, Juliana and Kaylie will each receive $2,000 with an equal amount going toward Lynbrook High School to be applied to science, technology, engineering and math education.
Both students are now in the running to become one of 40 finalists. These students will be determined later this month. If selected as a finalist, the students will receive an all-expense-paid trip in mid-March to Washington, D.C., where they will compete for more than $1.8 million in additional awards, including a grand prize of $250,000.
Juliana was selected for her project titled, “Investigating the Novel Role of the Activated Cdc-42-Associated Tyrosine Kinase (ACK1) in Learning and Memory using a DAck Null Allele in Drosophila melanogaster,” while Kaylie was selected for her project, “Disentangling Spatial Correlations in Inhomogeneous Materials with Shift Invariant Artificial Neural Networks.”
Congratulations to both students on this tremendous achievement!
