Rising Junior Allison Battista recently returned from Los Angeles where she participated in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. Allison was invited to the event after her project, titled "Using 3D Modeling to Save our Reefs: Exploring the Accuracy of Reef Assessment Techniques Using Structure from Motion," won first place in the Computer Science and Mathematics category at the Montgomery County Science Fair.


The Intel ISEF, a program of Society for Science & the Public, is the world's largest international pre-college science competition. Each year, approximately 1,800 high school students from more than 75 countries, regions, and territories are awarded the opportunity to showcase their independent research and compete for on average $4 million in prizes.

While in Los Angeles, Allison had the opportunity to explore the city and attend a Q&A with a panel of Nobel laureates. She really enjoyed meeting and speaking with students from all over the world. "it was pretty special just being there and seeing all the different projects," Allison said. "Some of them could really change the world and so it was a really good experience just to be a part of that."
