Christine Ye, a high school senior at Eastlake High School and a student in the Pulsar Search Collaboratory, was recently named one of the top 300 scholars in the 2022 Regeneron Science Talent Search competition.
The Regeneron Science Talent Search (STS) is the nation's oldest and most prestigious
science and mathematics competition for high school seniors. Over 1800
students from around the country entered this year, and Christine earned her
way to the top of the competition.
Christine is deeply involved in the
Pulsar Search Collaboratory (PSC), an astronomy education outreach program
with partnerships between West Virginia University and Green Bank Observatory.
PSC students and teachers gain access to radio astronomy data collected by the
Green Bank Telescope, the world’s fully steerable radio telescope. PSC members
then analyze the data to search for new pulsars.

She may be chosen to move on to the finalist round of the Regeneron STS in a couple of weeks. The
finalists will then compete for more than $1.8 million in awards during a week-long
competition taking place March 10-16, 2022.
