Examples of Successful Projects
Welcome to the Excellence in Student Research Page! The intent of this page is to provide students and teachers with examples of research projects completed recently which did very well in competition at the local, regional, state, and in some cases, international level.
These photos were taken of Aditya Denduluri standing with his project display at the 2004 and 2005 Intel International Science & Engineering Fairs (ISEF). Adi did two completely different types of Microbiology projects each of these years. Adi currently attends MIT in Boston, Massachusetts.
This photo is of Robert Cordwell who made it to compete at ISEF three out of four of his high school years in the Mathematics category. He also won or placed in several other national competitions and currently attends CalTech in California.
Daniel Appel made it to compete at ISEF all four of his high school years in the Engineering with a project involving nanotechnology. He also won or placed in several other national competitions. Daniel currently attends New Mexico Tech in Socorro, NM.
Katie Liberatore competed at ISEF in 2004 with a breast cancer research project she had been working on for several years. She did very well at the local, regional, and state level each of the years she competed. Katie has continued her research as a student at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM.
Kyle Jaffa is due to graduate from Sandia High School in Albuquerque, NM in 2007. He has attended ISEF in 2004 and 2005 with his project, “An Investigation of Atmospheric Mercury Deposition and Smoke.”
Does Time Fly?
Curvature of a Trumpet
All three of these projects (DNA, Does Time Fly, Curvature of a Trumpet) did very well at the local, regional, and state levels.
More to Come
We will be adding to this page in the next few months to include sample abstracts and sample ISEF forms filled out properly as examples for teachers and students! We hope this information will be helpful to you!
