Four Chandler students won top awards Friday at the 2007 Intel Engineering and Science Fair, competing among more than 1,500 students from 51 countries.
• Jingyuan Luo, 18, Hamilton High School. First place in Environmental Sciences, $3,000. Also won first place from United Technologies Corporation and $2,000; and second place from Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry and $250.
Project: Toxicity and Bioaccumulation of Nanomaterials in Aquatic Species.
Student quote: "Nanoparticles will have many uses in the future. Before the industry booms, society needs to understand the toxicity and bioaccumulation of these particles. This project demonstrates that nanoparticles are toxic to the environment and can be transferred though a food chain. Thus, development should proceed with caution."
