MIT THINK Competition – Three of Five Indian-American Students
THINK (Technology for Humanity guided by Innovation, Networking, and Knowledge) is a program organized by undergraduates at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). The competition challenges high school students to take a refreshing approach to designing a technological solution to a social problem
THINK is an annual science research and innovation competition for high school students. Rather than requiring students to have completed a research project before applying, THINK instead caters to students who have done extensive research on the background of a potential research project and are looking for additional guidance in the early stages of their project.
This year, three of the five winners included the following Indian-Americans:
Isha Puri, Horace Greeley High School, NY
Visala Tallavarjula, Wilcox High School, CA
Nipun Jayatissa, Maumee Valley Country Day School, OH
