This was the first year in the history of the Dr. Ying Student Science Competition that there was a three-way tie for first place.
Gabrielle A. Gianelli, a junior at Orange County’s Lake Highland Preparatory School; Nimish P. Ramanlal, a junior at Seminole County’s Seminole High School; and Shiv Gaglani, a junior at Brevard County’s West Shore Jr./Sr. High School, all took home $5,000 prizes. This also marked Shiv’s second time as a top winner.
The winning projects included Gabrielle’s mathematical analysis of Mars that could assist NASA with their search for signs of water on the Red Planet; Nimish’s plan to improve high-powered quantum computers so they could better assist in the research and development of nanobots that could help cure a variety of diseases; and Shiv’s experiments to increase the potency of adult stem cells, which could curb the controversy surrounding embryonic stem cell research.
