Mason High School senior Aman Kumar will represent Ohio and introduce his research at the 2014 American Junior Academy of Science annual meeting in Chicago.
Aman was selected to represent The Ohio Academy of Science based on his presentation “Processing of Multilayer Microcrystalline and Nano-crystalline Diamond Thin Films Using Argon Rich Microwave Plasma with Chemical Vapor Deposition (MCPVD)” at the 2013 Ohio Academy of Science conference. The process involved competitive presentation at the annual conference of OAS at the University of Findlay, OH followed by the submission of a scientific paper on his research. This is the third time Aman has qualified to represent Ohio. In the past he presented at the AJAS international conference in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
"It is a huge accomplishment to have the American Junior Academy of Science recognize the remarkable achievements of Aman’s independent research once again," said Mindy McCarty-Stewart, MHS Principal. “This young scientist’s work is very impressive, and we congratulate him.”
Aman also earned The Ohio State University, Stone Laboratory Scholarship for outstanding project in Botany, Environmental Sciences and Zoology during the State Science fair. His topic of presentation was “Pantherophis Guttatus Kinematics, Spatial Decision Making and Modes of Locomotion”.
