Syosset Student Named Siemens Semifinalist

High school senior is only one of 312 students to be selected.

l senior Karan Sikka was recently named a semifinalist in the prestigious Siemens Competition in math, science, and technology.  

More than 1,300 projects, a record number, were submitted this year from top students across the country, and only 312 students were selected as semifinalists.

Sikka conducted research this past summer at Stony Brook University on his project titled, "A Temperature Controlled Investigation of Gold and Palladium Nano-particle Catalysis for the Performance Enhancement of a Proton-Exchange-Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cell," a project that examined the potential to revolutionize the way we produce electrical energy and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.

The Siemens competition was created in 1998 to recognize the best and brightest math and science students in the country.
