APS Students Top Categories at Science Fair

Albuquerque High, Manzano students qualify for International Science/Engineering Fair

Two APS high school students qualified for the 2015 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair as a result of being Senior Division Grand Award Winners in this weekend’s Central New Mexico Science and Engineering Research Challenge.

Ruby Aidun, a sophomore at Albuquerque High, and Lien Tang, a freshman at Manzano, will travel to Pittsburgh, Pa., for the international competition May 10-15. The two were among seven APS middle and high school students who topped their categories in the research competition held this weekend at the University of New Mexico.

Aidun’s research focused on the odds of correctly guessing a game of chance and Tang studied the genetics of fruit flies.

“I congratulate all the students who participated in the research challenge and the top winners,” said APS Superintendent Brad Winter. “STEM education is very important and these students could not have done it without the guidance of their science, technology, engineering or math teachers.”

Topping their categories in the junior division were Dianna Mullen of Jefferson Mid-School in behavior and social sciences; Michael Adams, Grant Mid-School, in computer and mathematical sciences; and Kaia Nunley, Jefferson Mid-School, in environmental science.

Tops in the senior division were Lea Godret-Miertschin of Nex+Gen Academy in the chemistry category and Sarah Dallo of Sandia High in the microbiology category.
