Chatham High School senior Nishita Sinha will advance to the 55th National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium in San Diego in April, after winning Second Place in the Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium at Rutgers last week.

Sinha has worked with CHS Science teacher Dr. Yelena Naumova on her project called "Experimental Studies in Developing Safe Sanitation Solutions," which is aimed at improving sanitation conditions in rural areas around the world and protecting groundwater from pathogenic microorganisms.

Other organizations have recognized Sinha for her work on this project as well: she was named a Regeneron STS Scholar this year, and she was awarded the Stockholm Junior Water Prize last year. She also won five awards at the New Jersey Regional Science Fair at Rutgers University in 2016 for her project on Safe Sanitation Solutions.

Two other students from Chatham High School’s Research Club also participated in the Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium at Rutgers. At the symposium, they presented their original research efforts before the panel of judges and an audience of their peers. Senior Felicia Guo presented on computer modeling of biochemical reactions occurring in human bodies, and junior Indira Roy presented on the use of hydroponics to help farmers in India.

Naumova advises the CHS Research Club and mentors students as they pursue their own specific interests in independent research projects. It is through the Research Club that these students worked on their projects and developed their presentations.
