Teaneck’s Joshua Meier is Google Science Fair Finalist [Video]
Student’s project focused on stem cells.
A 16-year-old Bergen County Academies student from Teaneck was named a finalist in the 2012 Google Science Fair.
Joshua Meier was one of 90 regional finalists and also took second place in the Intel International Science Fair for a stem cell project, according to a feature story about Meirer in the Teaneck Suburbanite.
“Meier's project, which reflected his interest in both biology and genetics, attempted to discover why artificially generated stem cells cannot be used in medical research,” the story said.
The Google Science Fair is held entirely online and open to anyone between 13 and 18.
“All you need is an idea. Geniuses are not always A-grade students. We welcome all mavericks, square-pegs and everybody who likes to ask questions,” Google’s website explains.
