Development of GAD2 Expressing Cells in the Zebra Finch HVC During Critical Periods of Song Learning is the title of West Linn High School senior Daniel D. Tang's project submitted for the 2015 Intel STS competition.
What is Intel STS? Intel Science Talent Search (http://student.societyforscience.org/intel-sts-2015-semifinalists) is the nation's most prestigious pre-college science competition. Alumni of STS have made extraordinary contributions to science and hold more than 100 of the world's most coveted science and math honors, including the Nobel Prize and National Medal of Science. Annually, students entering the Intel STS compete for more than $1.6 million in awards. Only 300 students are announced as semifinalists each year. From this select pool, 40 finalists are then invited to Washington, DC in March to participate in final judging, display their work to the public, meet with notable scientists, and compete for three top awards of $150,000 each.
