STEM Academy Highlights

Congratulations! Catherine Jiao, a senior in the Advanced Math and Science pathway of the STEM academy, was named a top 300 scholar in the 82nd Regeneron Science Talent Search—the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science and mathematics competition for high school seniors. A total of 1,949 students around the country entered the competition this year, which is owned and produced by Society for Science. This is an extraordinary accomplishment deserving of much celebration.

STEM Academy students place 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in the Cobb/Paulding Regional Science Fair on January 30th!


Congratulations to the following students:

3rd place: Sussana Huang: Docking SARS-CoV-2 Active Protein Mpro with AutoDock Vina for Therapeutic Drug Design.


2nd place: Kaylan Stark and Vikram Murugesan: Rates of Death in Nannochloropsis Phytoplankton as pH Decreases


1st Place: Abhinav and Abhishek Kona: Prophylactic and Therapeutic Roles of Glyeyrrhiza glabra in the Prevention and Treatment of COVID19.


Abhinav and Abhishek advance to the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair (GSEF). GSEF is Georgia’s premier forum for students to showcase their original research. Additionally, they were one of two projects that will also continue on to the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). ISEF is an annual science fair held in the United States. Every year, tens of millions of students participate in science fairs around the globe but only about 1,800 earn the right to compete for nearly $5 million awards bestowed each May at the ISEF. We wish them good luck as they move forward.

National Drone Design Competition Winners!

Congratulations to Rishab Rao and Pratyush Una, 12th graders in the Walton Engineering STEM Academy, who won 1st place in a national drone design competition
