ERHS Wins Third at International Science Fair

Los Angeles, CA - Angelina Yang, a senior from Eleanor Roosevelt High School's eSTEM Academy, has made CNUSD proud by securing third place at the International Science & Engineering Fair held last week in Los Angeles. Her remarkable success is complemented by the impressive achievements of her fellow CNUSD student, Harleen Virk, a freshman who also represented the district on this international stage.

Angelina's journey to this prestigious accomplishment began in January at the CNUSD Science & Engineering Fair, where her project won first place in the senior division and she took home the Sweepstakes award. Her exceptional work propelled her project to the Riverside County Science & Engineering Fair in February, where only three projects were selected to advance to the international stage. Remarkably, two out of those three projects were from CNUSD, marking a significant achievement for the district. 

Competing against over 1700 high school students from 67 countries, Angelina, alongside Harleen Virk, presented their projects during a rigorous weeklong judging process. Despite the fierce competition, Angelina's dedication and innovation shone through, earning her a well-deserved third-place award. Harleen Virk also demonstrated exceptional skill and creativity, highlighting the potential and promise of CNUSD's students.

Harleen’s participation as a freshman underscores the bright future of CNUSD’s STEM programs. Her presence at such a high-level competition at this early stage in her academic career is a testament to her potential and the strong foundation provided by CNUSD.

This remarkable success not only highlights Angelina's and Harleen’s talent and hard work but also underscores CNUSD's commitment to fostering excellence in STEM education. As Angelina and Harleen continue to inspire their peers and educators, their achievements serve as a testament to the exceptional quality of education provided by CNUSD's eSTEM Academy.
