Intel talent search finds Harker students
First it honored Adam Creasman, a 17-year-old senior from Monte Sereno for his microbiology project titled "Characterization of siRNA microparticle formation and encapsulation using supercritical fluids."
As Adam beamed, he was handed a big check for $1,000 and balloons.
Then the folks from Intel let it drop that sometimes a school has more than one finalist. They called up Arkajit Dey of Palo Alto, whose math project is "Tree-Realizability of a Distance Matrix." The 17-year-old leaped from the auditorium floor looking thrilled and dazed.
Then the kicker: There was one more student. Carolyn Wang, 17, of San Jose, produced a nanotechnology project titled "The Orientation of Polydiacetylene Ethanolamine Monolayers." Her friends shrieked. She was mobbed by hugs, and the applause in the auditorium reached a fevered pitch.
