Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. recently congratulated Farmingdale High School Senior Nakul Gupta on being chosen as a national semi-finalist in the 2013 Intel Science Talent Search.
“This is an extraordinary accomplishment and Nakul should be very proud to have earned a place among the nation’s top young scientists. Nakul’s tireless efforts and many hours of hard work and research have advanced him into an elite group of young men and women. This incredibly bright, hard-working young man will no doubt accomplish great things as he enters his collegiate years,” said Senator Fuschillo.
Participants from all across the country, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands compete in the talent search, considered the nation’s most prestigious pre-college science competition. Gupta is one of only 300 semifinalists chosen from entries nationwide. His research project can potentially help find practical solutions to cardiac problems involving Long QT Syndrome and cardiac arrhythmia.
Senator Fuschillo presented Gupta with a copy of a legislative resolution which was recently passed by the Senate in honor of his accomplishment. With the passage of this resolution, sponsored by Senator Fuschillo, Gupta’s name and achievement will forever be part of the New York State Senate’s official record.
