Princeton Innovation is proud to announce the results of its  inaugural high school essay competition, “Explore Scientific Innovation!”

Participants were asked to write about either a past or future scientific breakthrough that they felt had the greatest impact. We received submissions from several dozen highly qualified applicants. Essays were judged based on creativity, clarity, and content by our team of editors and our faculty advisor. Our five winners exemplified the ways in which our organization aims to communicate exciting science.  The winners’ essays can be found at the following links:

Alex Wang – Invention of the Microphone

Christian Cosgrove – Convolutional Neural Networks

Shree Nadkarni – Recombinant DNA

Jason Fiacco –  A Scientific Understanding of Creativity

Once again, thank you to all our participants, and congratulations to the pieces selected above! Be on the lookout for information about entering in next year’s competition!
