The Regeneron Science Talent Search, one of America’s most prestigious STEM competitions, held their Top 40 Awards Ceremony in DC on March 12th. Over the past 30 years of TJ’s existence, we have had around 25 students selected for the Top 40 Honors, and only about ten students who were selected to be among the top ten. This year, TJ is proud to announce that Adam Ardeishar was chosen as 3rd Place Winner with his project, Extreme Values of a Statistical Distribution Relating to the Coupon Collector Problem. Adam developed a way to calculate the average maximum values of distributional datasets, which could be applied to predicting the expected amount of time for a given number of different randomly-timed events to occur. Congratulations, Adam!

Did you know that your everyday actions can make a difference to the amount of energy we use in the building? Help our Energy Systems class make TJ more efficient by remembering to turn off lights and computers after you’re done using them, and suggesting teachers to teach class with only one of the main light switches on or with the blinds open for more natural light. If each of us can apply these little changes, we have the ability to make TJ a more energy efficient, environmentally friendly school.
