Engineering concentrator Shiv Gaglani '10 co-authors guide to help high schoolers find success with science (Huffington Post)
In the wake of President Barack Obama's recent State of the Union Address -- in which he lamented that the "quality of our math and science education lags behind many other nations" -- comes an extraordinary new book by five Harvard College students promoting science education to high school students.
Success with Science: The Winners' Guide to High School Research was written by five current or recent Harvard undergraduates, all of whom won national or international recognition during high school at major science competitions and events, including the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair; the Siemens Competition in Math, Science and Technology; and the Intel Science Talent Search.
They wrote the book to inspire more high school students to become involved in hands-on research and to experience the excitement of competing in science competitions on a national and international level.
