The Council of Texas Statisticians (COTS) sponsored an award at the ExxonMobil Texas Science and Engineering Fair (EMTSEF). The fair was held in San Antonio, Texas at the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center on April 2, 2011. The award was for “The Best Use of Statistics in a Science Project”. A team of judges from the San Antonio Chapter of the American Statistical Association helped select three senior high division projects that showed excellence in the use and knowledge of statistical methods. The volunteer judges were Keying Ye, John Schoolfield, Danny Sharon, Ken Williams, Michael Lecocke, Pete Donahoe, David Han, and Howard Monroe. First place and $125 were awarded to Amy Robinson, from Keystone High School in San Antonio, for her project, “Astronomical Image Processing: Eliminating Random Atmospheric Noise and Enhancing Low Resolution Images (Year III).” Second place and $100 were awarded to Bhas Karan Nair, from Plano High School in Plano, for his project, “Genome Signature and the Origin of Life.” Third place and $75 were awarded to Sai Gourisnakar from Robert L. Paschal High School in Fort Worth, for his project, “Novel Mathematical Characterizations of the One-dimensional, Self-gravitating System.” Congratulations to all of the winners! The Council of Texas Statisticians would like to thank all who volunteered to judge.
