On April 6th, Sanford junior Amanrai (Rai) Kahlon was awarded "First Place, Medicine & Health category" for the 11th grade at the regional Delaware Valley Science Fair (DVSF). Founded in 1949, DVSF is one of the oldest and largest Fairs in the country and embraces the philosophy that students learn science by doing science.  This year's fair invited over 800 participants from Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.  Rai and fellow Sanford junior Rahul D'Souza both attended the multi-day fair in Exton, PA.
On April 17th, the Delaware Biotechnology Institute (DBI) awarded Rai the "BioGENEius Award for Excellence in Medical BioTech Research". Rai's school project sponsor, Ms. Alyssa Hull, was presented with a "Teacher Recognition Award" and a $300 gift certificate from Fisher Science Education. Governor John Carney and Dr. Jung-Youn Lee (Interim Director, DBI) honored Rai and Ms. Hull in an awards ceremony at the Delaware Biotechnology Institute on the UD STAR Campus in Newark, DE.

Rai’s research project was "Gait Assessment with IMUs: Similarity and Dissimilarity of Walking Gait Reflected in Lower Limb Angular Velocity and Acceleration in Typically Developing Children."  He is thankful for the support of Ms. Hull and the multiple Sanford Upper School students who participated in the study.
