Five San Jose students are among the 40 finalists in the Regeneron Science Talent Search, the prestigious national contest sometimes called the Junior Nobel Prizes.
The competition previously was sponsored by Intel. The finalists, all high school seniors, include: Rohan Mehrotra and Advait Patil, both of Lynbrook High in San Jose; Rajiv Movva and Justin Xie, both of the Harker School in San Jose; and Teja Veeramacheneni of Archbishop Mitty High in San Jose.
The finalists will compete in March for top in Washington, D.C., including a $250,000 first-prize scholarship. The competition is run by the Society for Science and the Public.
