Maggie Walker Senior To Speak At The White House

Maggie Walker Senior to Speak at the White House

Saumil Bandyopadhyay, a senior at Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School from Henrico County, will personally present his research to President Obama and other science dignitaries Monday, April 22, at the Third Annual White House Science Fair.

Bandyopadhyay co-holds a provisional patent on his invention, which, in case you have the wherewithal to decipher the official description, is a “universal detector of light and radiation: multifunctionality enabled by quantum-mechanical wavefunction and density-of-states engineering, photomodulated electron tunneling, and quantum confined charge transport in nanowires.”

A product of Henrico County Schools, Bandyopadhyay started at Springfield Park Elementary in Henrico, then went to Echo Lake Elementary and was in the gifted program at Three Chopt Elementary, and the International Baccalaureate program at Moody Middle School.

The White House will webcast the event live from 11:30 a.m. on Monday  Watch Live: 2013 White House Science Fair | The White House
