Manzano Senior Among 40 Finalists in Prestigious National Science Competition

Katherine Cordwell is heading to Washington, D.C., to compete in the Intel Science Talent Search for more than $600,000 worth of prizes.

Manzano High senior Katherine Cordwell is one of only 40 finalists in the Intel Science Talent Search, one of the nation’s most prestigious pre-college science competitions.

She will be traveling to Washington D.C. in March to undergo final judging for her project titled, “Lower Central Series Quotients of Finitely Generated Algebras over the Integers.” She’ll be displaying her work to the public, meeting with notable scientists and competing for more than $600,000 in awards, the top one being $100,000 from the Intel Foundation.

The Intel Science Talent Search encourages students to pursue ambitious scientific questions and develop skills to solve the problems of tomorrow. Participants are judged on their original scientific research and their achievement and leadership, inside and outside the classroom.

The Intel Science Talent Search 2013 finalists are from 40 schools in 21 states. Katherine is the only New Mexico student in the finals.
