EXPO 2015 Announced

Expo 2015 is scheduled for Thursday, March 19, 2015, with a snow date of Friday, March 20.

The 2014 Expo took place on Thursday March 20, 2014. One of the winners this year has advanced to an international competition: the Stockholm Junior Water Prize. Deepika Kurup, a sophomore from Nashua High School South, will represent the United Sates at the International Stockholm Junior Water Prize competition held in Stockholm, Sweden from August 30th to September 5th.

Depika won first Place in Environmental Science for her project on "How to Purify Water” at the 2014 Expo in March. She then went on to earn first place in the NE Regional Competition and first place at the 2014 National Competition in the Stockholm Junior Water Prize Competition. This year at the Expo, Deepika presented new research on water purification using a process she developed while doing her research. She has applied for a patent for this process.

As the SJWP national winner, Deepika received $10,000 and a national trophy. She will be provided with an all-expense-paid trip to Sweden for the International competition. Her chemistry teacher, Mrs. Linda Polewarczyk will accompany Deepika to this competition.

NHSEEA congratulates Deepika on her recent achievement and wishes her all the best in Stockholm at the international competition.

Deepika’s research is typical of the quality and level of research of Expo winning projects that the association will submit for competition at the International Science and Engineering Fair, once NHSEEA affiliates.
