This year's Senior Division Grand Prize winner is Ohyoon Kwon from West Windsor-Plainsboro High. Her project is entitled Discovering The Regulation of Cell Adhesion Molecule L1 Expression By MeCP2 Using Rett Syndrome Patient Derived Neural Stem Cell. Miss Kwon won an all expense paid trip to the 2014 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair to be held in Los Angles, CA, in May. She will be competing with over 1600 students from around the world.
We also had sixteen Junior Division winners that will get to compete in the Broadcom Masters competition. The top 50 winners will win a trip to Washington, D.C.
