Staples senior Jason Gandelman — who earlier this year was a finalist in the Intel Science Talent Search, in addition to taking 3rd place at a Harvard national debate team, co-captaining the engineering team, and serving as co-chairman of the Youth Commission — has added another honor to his impressive resume.
Jason placed 3rd at last week’s Intel International Science and Engineering Fair’s 2010 Grand Awards ceremony in San Jose, California. He was honored in the Biochemistry Division for his work: “Bioinformatics and Synthetic Approaches to Studying Advanced Glycation End-Products in Eukaryotes.”
“06880” has no idea what that means. But Jason has spent the past 3 years studying it, through Staples’ innovative Authentic Science Research program.
We do understand that he worked spectacularly hard, and was stunningly successful, at something important, and something he loves.
And for that, our hat is humbly off to him.
