Adel Parambath Attends Joint Science And Technology Institute

Friday, September 20, 2019

Adel Parambath of Chattanooga was one of 35 high school students attending the Joint Science and Technology Institute, an educational opportunity to expand his knowledge and experience in science, technology, engineering and math.

Adel, son of Riju Parambath, is a student at McCallie School.

Adel collaborated with scientists and conducted research on 3-D Printing at University of Delaware. The 2019 high school projects included:

Environmental Water Quality
3D Design and Printing
Mathematics and Modeling Mania
Advanced Mechanical Prototyping
Microbiome-Based Antibiotic Discovery
Rapid Prototyping and Military Packaging
Expanded Robotics
Videography

The internship, held July 27-Aug. 9, was a fully funded research opportunity for high school students from the United States and from U.S. Department of Defense schools around the world. It was funded by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency's Joint Science Technology Office for Chemical and Biological Defense and managed by Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education. The research helped students gain confidence in their own abilities, provided an awareness of career options and encouraged pursuit of STEM careers.

“By immersing the students in STEM research in professional lab environments, they became excited about emerging sciences and felt encouraged to investigate STEM career opportunities,” said ORISE section manager Jennifer Tyrell.
