Girls Clean Up at the Siemens Competition
So much for any remaining stereotypes that math is for boys. Yesterday a group of female high school students took top honors at the annual math, science and technology Siemens Competition. For the first time in the event’s nine year history, young women won both the individual and the group competitions. Included in the awards were prizes of $100,000 scholarships for team and individual work on potential tuberculosis cures and bone growth in zebrafish.
Janelle Schlossberger and Amanda Marinoff are interviewed after winning the top team prize.
