Yash Kadadi '21 has been selected as a finalist in the Breakthrough Junior Challenge, a global competition for students to inspire creative thinking about science.
Students from around the world were invited to create and submit original videos that bring to life a concept or theory in the fields of life sciences, physics, or mathematics. The submissions were then judged on the student’s ability to communicate complex scientific ideas in engaging, illuminating, and imaginative ways.
More than 11,000 students from 178 countries registered for the global competition, which resulted in more than 3,200 video submissions. Out of those submissions, Yash's video on the Higgs Field was selected as one of the 15 finalists.
The winner of the challenge will be announced during the televised Breakthrough Prize Ceremony on Sunday, December 3 at 10 p.m. ET.
The junior challenge is organized by the Breakthrough Prize Foundation, which aims to celebrate the best scientific work and inspire the next generation of scientists. The foundation was started by the founders of Google, Facebook, and Digital Sky Technologies.
