FCS Senior & Siemens Reseach Competition 2017

October 25, 2017
By Admissions Office

From the Siemans' Foundation website: 

The Siemens Competition is the nation’s premier competition in math, science and technology for high school students.  Every year, students submit innovative individual and team research projects to regional and national levels of competition as they vie for college scholarships ranging from $1,000 up to $100,000. The Siemens Competition honors the best and brightest students for their accomplishments in math and science – students who are changing the world for the better.

This year, out of the more than 1860 projects submitted, 491 students are being recognized as semi-finalists. This select group of students and their notable projects are judged to determine who advances on to 6 regional competitions held in November. Individual and team winners of the regional contests earn the opportunity to compete in the National Finals held at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. in December where $500,000 in scholarships will be awarded, including two top prizes of $100,000.

The prize, launched by the Siemens Foundation in 1999, was established to increase access to higher education for students who are gifted in STEM and is based on the culture of innovation, research, and educational support that is the hallmark of Siemens.  This competition seeks to recognize and build a strong pipeline for the nation’s most promising scientists, engineers and mathematicians.

Congratulations to these students and their outstanding accomplishments.

2017 senior, Allen W. placed as a semi-finalist for the Siemans Research Competition, as one of the 80 students from California. It is very exciting to see our students doing independent research, and being awarded for their efforts. Allen has expressed his gratefulness to his teachers and counselors at FCS, and is very excited for placing as semi-finalist. 

We are so proud of you, Allen! You are paving the way for future FCS students with similar interests.

Partnering with families to provide extraordinary education and genuine encounters with Jesus, all within a community of compassion.
