YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- Emily Huang from Yorktown High School won a grand award at an international science event for her project "Developing Novel Methods to Implement Responses in Polydimethylsiloxane."

Hundreds of international visitors were in Houston, Texas, to the world’s largest international science fair focusing energy, engineering, and environment from April 27 - May 1.

Organized by Harmony Public Schools, high performing K-12 public charter schools in Texas, the ninth Annual International Sustainable World Energy, Engineering and Environment Project Olympiad (I-SWEEEP) concluded with an awards ceremony this past weekend. There were 385 projects from 62 countries. Among those participating were 564 high school researchers and 300 teachers who traveled to Houston for the event.

Finalists were selected to compete at I-SWEEEP by winning a top prize at state or national science fairs in their respective locales. Participants enjoyed the opportunity to meet other students from different parts of the world while seeing that they are not alone in their commitment to find solutions to the globe’s sustainability problems.
