Please congratulate Rohit Kamath on his recent achievement at the Science and Engineering Fair of Houston this past weekend. Last semester, Rohit partnered with Sandlin and a Rice University Professor to complete  an independent research experiment on the impact of distracted driving in teenagers. He tested 80 students from Tompkins High School on a driving simulator. His findings were presented and he represented Tompkins well! He earned 2nd place overall in the Behavior and Social Sciences category. He also won two special awards:

1) American Society of Safety Engineers

2) Science Explorer Award from Jacobs-NASA.

No other project in Behavioral Sciences won special awards, so this is a huge honor for him. Additionally, he is now qualified to compete at the State level science fair in San Antonio in May. Great job Rohit!!!
