Fairfax Resident Google Science Fair Finalist

Google announced the 90 regional finalists of the second Google Science Fair and among them is Rishabh Mazmudar of Fairfax.

This year’s competition saw thousands of project entries from students (aged 13 - 18) based in over 100 countries. Topics ranged from improving recycling using LEGO robots to treating cancer with a substance created by bees to tackling meth abuse.

Rishabh is a finalist in the 15 - 16 age group and his project, titled "Utilizing Metallofullerene Nanotechnology for Breast and Prostate Cancer Therapy," focuses on targeting metastasizing breast and prostate cancer cells without killing healthy cells through the aid of nanotechnology.

Rishabh’s project can now be found on display at http://google.com/sciencefair alongside the other top entries from around the world.
