Anthony Androulakis Congratulations to senior Anthony Androulakis!

 

The National Youth Science Camp is a residential STEM program designed to honor and challenge some of the nation's rising STEM leaders.  Dreher senior Anthony Androukalis is one of two delegates selected to represent South Carolina at this summer's camp.  Details about the camp are at the NYSC website.   

 

Earlier this year Anthony recieved the good news that the Society for Science & the Public selected him as a Top 300 Scholar in the 78th Regeneron Science Talent Search, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science and mathematics competition for high school seniors. Nearly 2,000 students nationwide entered the competition this year and only one other student in South Carolina was selected to receive this honor.  

 

Anthony investigated the topic, "Identifying the Neuroanatomical Correlates of Melodic Repetition Using a Novel Computerized Assessment in Stroke Patients."  He will receive $2,000 and Dreher will receive the same amount to use toward STEM-related activities.

 

Alumni of the Science Talent Search have made extraordinary contributions to science and hold more than 100 of the world’s most distinguished science and math honors, including the Nobel Prize and the National Medal of Science. 

 

Anthony is the son of George and Xiao Androulakis. Click to hear Anthony speak about his project.
