An alumnus of Hyderabad Public School(HPS), Begumpet, G Prithvi, 17 will be representing Singapore in The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, which will be held in Phoenix, Arizona, USA from May 12 to 17.
Prithvi’s project was one of the three projects selected out of 289 entries for representing Singapore at the fair, which is the world’s largest international pre-college science competition. The fair provides an annual forum for more than 1,500 high school students from about 70 countries, regions, and territories to showcase their independent research as they compete for over $3 million annually. The Intel ISEF is the premier global science competition for students in grades 9-12.
Talking of his achievement, Prithvi says, “The recognition is the result of hours of my work, and it is the first success towards fulfilling my ambition to be scientist.”
Prithvi now lived in Singapore with his parents and is currently class 12 at St. Andrews Junior College, Singapore. His ambition is to become a scientist and do research in Particle Physics.
Prithvi was working on research into high performance anodes for Lithium ion batteries using Cobalt compounds obtained by bulk preparation methods at National University of Singapore, and the project was selected for participation in the Singapore Science and Technology fair held recently.
