Two Irvine students recognized as top science researchers

Two University High School students, Howard Ji and Julianne Wu, have been chosen as finalists in the prestigious Regeneron Science Talent Search, a nationwide math and science competition for high school seniors. This competition is considered the oldest and most esteemed in the country.

Ji’s project involved creating a robot that could safely inspect aging bridges to protect human workers. Wu’s project focused on studying how hormones like testosterone and estrogen impact arterial tissue and cardiovascular systems.

Out of a pool of 2,162 entrants from 36 schools across 19 states, Ji and Wu were among the 40 finalists selected based on the scientific rigor of their projects and their potential to make significant contributions as future scientists and leaders.

These finalists will participate in a weeklong competition this month where they will have the chance to compete for $1.8 million in awards. The top 10 winners will be revealed at a ceremony on March 12 in Washington, D.C.
