Nhan Nguyen, Chetan Kulkarni, and Marcus Johnson served on the judging team for the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Intelligent Systems (IS) Award for the Synopsys Santa Clara Valley Science and Engineering Fair Association (SCVSEFA) on March 23, 2017. The AIAA IS Award recognizes the project that best embodies the following criteria:
BACKGROUND: The SCVSEFA designs the Synopsys Championship to stimulate interest in science and technology for 6th-12th grade students from public, private and parochial schools. The philosophy behind the Fair is simple — students learn science by doing science. The SCVSEFA provides a forum for students to present their scientific work and to interact with scientists and receive feedback on their efforts. Students are awarded scholarships, cash prizes, and other non-monetary recognition for outstanding work. Winners from the Synopsys Championship are awarded trips to the California State Science Fair and the affiliated Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). This year, the Awards Ceremony will take place on April 9th at the Campbell Heritage Theater.
