SJS Senior Wins at Prestigious ISEF in Los Angeles!

We are so proud of Jerry Chen (‘24) for representing Puerto Rico at the 2024 Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Los Angeles! This is the world’s largest and most prestigious pre-college STEM competition, where finalists from science fairs in over 60 countries get to present their work. 

Congratulations to Jerry, who won the first-place special award from the YM American Academy and a $3,000 cash prize for his project, “Unveiling New Horizons in 2D Materials: Computational Discovery of a Metallic Boron Nitride Monolayer.”

Throughout the competition, finalists also had the opportunity to be interviewed by professionals from academia and industry, attend science seminars with experts in the field, enjoy the event’s festivities, and be treated to a memorable trip to Universal Studios LA.

Way to go, Jerry!
