Senior Named 2022 Regeneron STS Scholar

On January 6, senior Vale R. was announced as a Regeneron Scholars for his project titled “Enhancing Performance and Sustainability of Firefighting Aircraft in the Era of Wildfires Fueled by Global Warming” that focuses on improving firefighting aircraft using a low-cost, retrofitted aerodynamic device.
Only 300 students were selected for this award out of the 1,805 students across the nation who entered this competition. 
 
Vale’s project was developed during his time in Buckley’s applied science class. The project was also well-received at the L.A. County Science Fair in 2021, winning 3 awards and advancing to the state level. 
 
“I am personally excited to have my hard work pay off, and I am thrilled that a project which addresses the impact of global warming was recognized,” said Vale. 
 
Congratulations Vale! The top 40 finalists will be announced January 20.
