As posted on NewtonSTEM, Newton North HS junior Kavish Gandhi is part of a two-student team that yesterday won the regional finals in the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology — the top nationwide scientific research competition for high-school students.  Out of 1,599 projects submitted nationwide, his team is one of six that have been invited to compete at the national finals next month for six scholarships ranging from $10,000 to $100,000.  According to one of the university professors judging the regional finals, Kavish and his teammate, Noah Golowich of Lexington, “produced Ph.D-level research” in the area of Ramsey theory.  In the Newtonite, Kavish describes Ramsey theory as “‘focused on finding patterns and order in sufficiently large systems’ through theoretical computer science, communications networks, cellular networks, positional board games, and molecular structures.”  Anyone else ever think about that intersection?
