OSSINING, N.Y. -- Two Ossining High School students won third-place prizes at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Pittsburgh.

Senior Juliet Ivanov placed third in the biochemistry category. Junior Michael Earle received a third-place award in the physics and astronomy category. They each won a $1,000.

Earle's research is on single-atom-thick crystals that can be used to make smaller, faster and more efficient flexible electronics. In studying the fundamental light-matter interactions between two of these single-atom-thick crystals he discovered that when they are layered on top of each other, they act as a three-atom-thick solar panel.

Ivanov researched a novel method to reduce intestinal damage associated with cancer treatment. She has focused on the promise of interleukin-22, a protein, in helping reduce side effects that bone marrow transplant patients experience. She recently won first place in the medicine and health category at the 53rd National Junior Science & Humanities Symposium in Hunt Valley, Md.

Three other Ossining students also participated in the weeklong science fair, the largest in the world: Stephanie Becker, who competed in the biomedical sciences category, and the team of Brinda Ramesh and Nicole Ruiz for a behavioral sciences project.

This was the 14th consecutive year that OHS students have earned an all-expenses-paid trip to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
