Wheeler High School senior Darpan Patel was recently highlighted on ajc.com’s ‘Get Schooled’ blog. Patel is a student at Wheeler’s magnet program, the Center for Advanced Studies in Science, Mathematics, and Technology and is active in many extracurricular activities at the school.
Patel is one of only three regional finalists from Georgia in the 2009 Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology. The competition recognizes remarkable talent early on, fostering individual growth for high school students who are willing to challenge themselves through science research. Through this competition, students have an opportunity to achieve national recognition for science research projects that they complete in high school.
