Aron Coraor, a 17 year old Huntington High School senior, has been named a semi-finalist in the 2014 Intel Science Talent Search, the most prestigious pre-college science competition in the United States.

“This is tremendously exciting for Aron, for his teachers and for the district,” Huntington Superintendent James W. Polansky said. “An incredible amount of research and study, typically over multiple years, must go into producing a high-quality project that reaches this level. We wish him well as his work moves forward to next level of adjudication!”

Mr. Coraor, one of the top members of Huntington’s Class of 2014, has impressed judges with his research project titled “Pressure Dependent Azeotropic Melting Relations in the Mg2SiO4-Fe2SiO4-NaAlSi3O8-CaAl2Si2O8 System: A Critical Role in Lunar Highlands Formation?”

The Huntington teenager is one of just 300 Intel semi-finalists in this year’s competition, which drew 1,794 entrants from 489 high schools spread across 45 states, the District of Columbia and seven overseas schools.
