SSP alumni take on the World Science Festival

Doing Science

SSP alumni, Harry Paul, Eswar Anandapadmanaban, Kalia Firester, and Tiffany Sun were invited to present their research at the World Science Festiival in New York. 

Unsuprisingly, our alumni take on the world. Sometimes, they're invited to take part in the World Science Festival as well. 

On May 31, 2015, four SSP alumni presented their research at the Ultimate Science Street Fair in New York City. 

The Intel ISEF and Intel STS alumni who participated were Harry Paul (Intel ISEF 2014, Intel STS 2014 semifinalist), Eswar Anandapadmanaban (Intel ISEF 2015, Intel STS 2015), Kalia Firester (Intel ISEF 2013, 2015; Intel STS 2015), and Tiffany Sun (Intel ISEF 2015, Intel STS 2015).
