Roseville science wiz to compete in international science competition

Roseville Area High School Senior Aditi Das has been selected to compete at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Los Angeles in May.

Aditi qualified for the ISEF competition at the recent Twin Cities Regional Science Fair where she presented on her research project, “Developing Transgenic Sugar Beet by Agrobacterium-mediated Gene Transfer.”

Aditi’s research has implications worldwide for creating more effective agricultural production and supporting robust food supplies for the world’s growing population.

“Our entire school community is proud of Aditi as she continues to excel in the area of science,” said RAHS Principal Jenny Loeck. “She is an exemplary student representative of RAHS.”

At the ISEF competition, Das will compete against 1600 other high school students from more than 70 countries around the world for nearly $4 million in prizes and scholarships.

In addition to the ISEF, Das will also be competing at the State Science Fair and the Tri-State Junior Science and Humanities Symposium, both in the end of March.
