Junior Suraj “Neil” Sheth was one of only 30 high school students from around the world selected to participate in the exclusive Eisenman Materials Camp in Ohio last month.
The camp, a week-long residential experience utilizing hands-on learning principles of applied math, chemistry and basic physics, is designed to allow the world’s “best and brightest” students to learn more about the world of materials, science and engineering.
“I love to look at the world through the prism of newly acquired knowledge,” Sheth said. “This camp put me on a path to pursue my dream of discovering new materials and designing advanced cardiovascular equipment for the medical field.”
A captain of last year’s BHS Scholastic Bowl team, the 2012 Bolingbrook High School Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Ambassador hopes to pursue a bachelor’s degree in bioengineering and a M.D./Ph.d for a career as a cardiologist.
Sheth is also a straight-A student.
“At the camp I got the opportunity to work with researchers in a real lab environment with state-of-the-art equipment,” Sheth said. “The idea of the camp was to help students figure out better ways to create new technologies through innovation.”
