The Metro Richmond STEM Fair (MRSF) provides our region’s young scientists with a platform to share research that they have diligently and passionately developed. Through the MRSF, students are afforded the opportunity to present their research to their peers, as well as to educational, industry, scientific and community leaders. The MRSF is a two-level juried, competitive fair and serves as Central Virginia’s regional qualifying event for the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF) and the Broadcom MASTERS Competition.  https://www.mymsic.org/stemfair 

Three Maggie Walker Governor’s School students, working on their own, submitted entries to the fair at Godwin HS this Saturday. 

  1. Perisa Ashar (’21-Henrico). Title: In-Vitro Patch-Clamp Study of the ih Current in Nice Thalamus Neurons Including Finding Novel Electrophysiological Biomarkers for Autism Spectrum Disorders.
  2. Nikki Kumar (’21-Henrico). Title: The Effect of Temperature Change on the Voltage Produced by Different Pyroelectric Materials, and
  3. Adhvikaa Ambikapathi Revathi (’21-Henrico). Title: The Effect of Native Species of Countries with High Prevalence of Hellcobacter pylori Infection in Adults on the Inhibition of Lactococcus lactis.

Relevant and ambitious science projects, indeed!  Have a great fair on Saturday.
