A Desert Vista student was just named an Intel Science Talent Search finalist. Annie Dai’s project is called Development of “Smart” Hydrogels for Three-Dimensional (3-D) Dynamic Tactile Displays.

Dai designed soft hydrogels that may enable development of a 3-D dynamic computer display for the visually impaired. Dai is one of 40 finalists narrowed down from more than 1,700 entries from across the country.

Intel Corporation recognized 40 U.S. high school seniors as finalists in the Intel Science Talent Search 2013, a program of Society for Science and the Public, and the nation’s oldest pre-college science competition.

The Intel Science Talent Search encourages students to pursue ambitious scientific questions and develop skills to solve the problems of tomorrow.

Participants are judged on their original scientific research and achievement and leadership, inside and outside the classroom.

The 40 finalists will compete in Washington, D.C. March 7-13 for $630,000 in awards. The top winner will receive $100,000 from the Intel Foundation.
