As a sixth grader, Nathan Han of Boston received first-place honors at MSSEF's 2011 Middle School Science Fair for his project, "A Study of Somatic Sensory Receptive Fields in Human Skin." From there, he went on to the Broadcom MASTERS -- a prestigious national STEM competition for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.
This spring, Nathan has another honor to add to the list. He has been named one of 30 semifinalists in Disney's Iron Man 3 Inventor and Innovator Fair. Held in conjunction with the release of Marvel’s “Iron Man 3,” starring Robert Downey Jr., the competition asked students from across the United States to produce innovative, inventive projects based on themes from the movie.
If he is selected as a finalist, Nathan will win a trip to California for the premiere of Iron Man 3, a visit to Disneyland, a trip to Broadcom Headquarters, the opportunity to share his research at the El Capitan Theatre and more! Good luck, Nathan!
