Sarah Shader 

Won two awards:

The first was the American Mathematical Society.  The American Mathematical Society was founded in 1888, to further the interests of mathematical research & scholarship, as well as to serve the national/international community through its publications, meetings, advocacy & other programs. Friends and family of the late mathematician, Karl Menger, contribute to a fund in his memory, to be distributed by the AMS for annual awards at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.  She received a cash award.

The second was the Mu Alpha Theta, National High School and Two-Year College Mathematics Honor Society.  The Society was formed over 50 years ago to develop strong scholarship in Mathematics and to promote the understanding and enjoyment of the subject. The Mu Alpha Theta Award is given to the most challenging, thorough, and creative investigation of a problem involving mathematics accessible to high school students. Components of the investigation may include, but are not limited to, mathematical proof, mathematical modeling, statistical analysis, visualization, simulation, and approximation. She received a cash award.


Lia at CERN

Lia Eggleston  

Won the European Organization for Nucler Research - CERN.  CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world's largest and most respected centers for scientific research. Its business is fundamental physics, finding out what the universe is made of and how it works. At CERN, the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter, the fundamental particles. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists learn about the laws of nature.  She received an all-expense paid one week trip to tour CERN in Switzerland.
