"It happened to me," she says. "I heard, 'You shouldn't be shooting the crossbow at marine animals (to tranquilize them for study); a guy should do it,' which was ridiculous."
His confusion eventually led to well beyond average understanding: Savoor began a blog in seventh grade, Michael Kors Tote Black Monogram
The world's largest pre college science competition brought together 1,600 competitors from more than 70 countries, regions and territories to Phoenix, AZ, for the weeklong, anything's possible event.
From small ideas big things may be coming
Savoor's grandfather provided the inspiration that launched the Monte Vista sophomore's investigation of calcium's regenerative effect on insulin producing beta cells.
"I grew up in a multicultural environment a Persian culture at home, a Swedish environment at school," he says. "I learned to step into other shoes and take new points of view. As a scientist, it helps Michael Kors Hamilton Handbag
"It's not just for cold countries," he insists, "The problem can happen in the cooling devices used to transport vaccines to warm, third world countries, too."
things work were established a long, long time ago," Savoor says research "opens a window." Even if a discovery is unexpected or maybe, especially when it is he embraces learning and was thrilled that six out of the seven ISEF days were devoted to sharing.
"Parents in this community value education," she says, during an interview including Savoor and Sorayya. "That's why we're having this level of participation."
"It's our job, as scientists, to find out what those ancient rules are. I learned so much, just by looking at other projects," he says.
Monte Vista High School's Meghan Faerber, a biology teacher at the school Savoor and Sorayya attend, followed her big idea returning to landlubber status by leaping from marine mammal research to academia three years ago. In addition to Savoor, she has mentored ISEF participants like Monte Vista's Christina Ren, who this year was invited to conduct a symposium about her "Science Alliance Network" at the fair.
Sixteen year old Rohan Savoor's big idea started in Walnut Creek, with a drop of blood. Danville resident Aryo Sorayya's big idea might someday transform the stability of vaccines. Dougherty Valley High School student Andrew Chen's big idea, graphene oxide enhanced PEM fuel cells, seeks to open a new chapter in renewable power sourcing and won a third place ISEF Energy and Transportation award.
Using his chess playing, analytical mind and four years' experience as an intern at HTD Biosystems, Sorayya worked to develop a freeze stable Tetanus vaccine. The applications of his project are global. Because the efficacy of aluminum based vaccines is highly sensitive to temperature, valuable resources can be destroyed due to improper handling or storage. Sorayya replaced aluminum salts with his own home brew, a completely novel lipid composition with a positive electrical charge.
He won a third place, $1,000 "Grand Award" in the Medicine and Health Sciences category.
tracking and posting the latest diabetes research, including information coming from the UC San Francisco's German Lab.
Today's science climate is moving toward more collaborative and expressive capabilities, she suggests. With greater emphasis on cross disciplinary teams, slicker presentations and societal encouragement, Faerber believes a shift is happening. And with all her students, teacher driven projects are out; student propelled research is in.

Sorayya arrived in Danville from Sweden at the age of 11. Speaking Farsi, Swedish and only a little English, he picked up the latter on the run. He chose Monte Vista because the school curriculum includes Japanese.
Sorayya placed first (receiving $3,000) in the Medicine and Health Sciences division. Headed to Stanford as "undeclared," he expects to major in biochemistry and Japanese.
"My grandfather has a form of Type 1 diabetes," Savoor explains. "I used to see him prick his finger to get a blood sample. I asked him, 'Are you going to get better?' I didn't understand the concept of a disease you don't recover from."
"Eventually, I went over there to ask them what they're doing," he says.
Faerber, who appears young enough to be mistaken for a member of the student body, breaks science down into digestible bits. She Michael Kors Crossbody Jet Set finds it easy to engage students, especially girls. The gender divide, she claims, happens after high school, when hardcore science and old school bias intercede.
