Glen Meyerowitz, a senior at Northport High School, recently won third place in the Physical Sciences category at the 47th National Junior Science & Humanities Symposium for his research done with Brookhaven Lab physicist Helio Takai on high-energy cosmic rays.
Meyerowitz was among approximately 250 students presenting work at the symposium, which was held in Colorado Springs from April 29 to May 3. He will receive a $2,000 scholarship from the event's sponsors, the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force, for his project titled "Uncovering Elusive Ultra High Energy Particles: Development of A Method For Cosmic Ray Detection."
Meyerowitz will also present his work at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Reno, NV, which begins today, May 10, and runs until May 15.
