Competing against more than 400 high school students from around the world, Princeton International School of Math and Science’s (PRISMS) 13-student team claimed a championship spot at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
A group of PRISMS students (Howard, Lucia, Angel, Gavin) participated in the 10th Annual FIB SEM Workshop, which was held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on March 2nd of 2017.
On Friday, October 21st, PRISMS students had the privilege of hearing about cutting edge research on cell motility by Dr. Chris Janetopoulos, a professor at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia.
It’s no secret that research takes a lot of trial and error. Any senior here at PRISMS can tell you that although two years seems like enough time to complete their chosen research project, the time goes by very quickly.
This Wednesday(March 30th, 2016) we had a presentation about Focused Ion Beam (FIB) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) technologies. Mr. Valery Ray, a specialist in FIB and SEM from Advanced Imaging and Microscopy Lab of Maryland Nanocenter gave a talk for the whole school.
A team of fifteen students from PRISMS competed in the 2nd annual Cornell Science Olympiad Invitational on February 6th. The PRISMS Science Olympiad team was ranked the top six among twenty-two teams from sixteen high schools nationwide for six events.
This competition was held on January 29th-30th at Randolph College, Lynchburg, Virginia. This is the second year that PRISMS has participated in USIYPT, abbreviation of “United States Invitational Young Physicists Tournament”.
This year, PRISMS students joined this big math competition and they did very well. The 14 students listed below qualified for the American Invitational Mathematics Exam by achieving an AMC12A score of 99 or an AMC10A score of 106.5.
Even though PRISMS is considered a school where students’ strongest suits are mathematics and science, there is a whole other field of interest that more than 10 students explore each Wednesday afternoon – computational linguistics.
PRISMS Falcons, the math team of our school, participated in Princeton University Mathematics Competition on Nov 22nd, 2014. This was the second time for us to join in this big party (last year, we participated in division B and won the 2nd place).
PRISMS EM Falcons, the physics team of our school, participated in Princeton University Physics Competition on Nov 22nd, 2014. This was the first time for us to join in this new competition. And our Falcons had excellent performance in this competition.
As part of the service learning at PRISMS, the 9th graders were organized to make lunch bags donated to Trenton Soup Kitchen of which the mission is to "feed those who are hungry in the Trenton area and offers programs to encourage self-sufficiency and improve the quality of life of its patrons".
While only in its first year of operation, the Princeton International School of Mathematics and Science (PRISMS) showed it could compete handily with public and private school powerhouses from around the world by outscoring several of them at the recent Harvard/MIT Mathematics Competition (HMMT).
As the first semester at the Princeton International School of Mathematics and Science (PRISMS) came to an end, the high school students from the U.S. and China are not cramming for finals! In the spirit of the schools’ mission to illuminate powerful ideas, nurture a compassionate community and inspire profound inquiry, students prepared formal presentations in lieu of final exams.
PRISMS Falcons, the math team of our school, participated in Princeton University Mathematics Competition on 16th Nov. In the more than 600 participants, we won the 2nd place in overall team competition of B division. Our math heroes are: Douglas, Joe, Max, William, Ross, Gavin and Hill.
Dodecahedron Day was founded in 2004 by Dr. Vince Matsko and Todd Klauser in Quincy, Ill. The intent was to have older students go into the classrooms of younger students and teach them about dodecahedra and how to build them. They took students from the high school to fifth- and sixth-grade classrooms and exposed them to the world of three-dimensional geometry.
