2013 White House Science Fair

In 2013, President Obama hosted the third White House Science Fair and for the third time, the BioGENEius Program was invited to participate.  Invitations to this select event recognize the BioGENEius Challenge as an outstanding national science competition and honor students for their many achievements.

On April 22, 2013, Nathan Kondamuri of Dyer, Indiana represented the International BioGENEius Challenge and presented his research at the national event.  Nathan was the 2012 1st Place BioGENEius winner where he presented his project titled: A Novel Porphyrin Based Solar Cell Combining Coordinated Metal Ion Substitution and Self-Assembly to Broaden the Absorption Spectrum to Efficiently Create Sustainable Electrical Energy.
