Pranav Chhalliyil has attended Maharishi School* in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, since kindergarten, and he's one of the many children who have benefitted from the breadth of experiences and support offered to each student—which include a strong project-based learning from kindergarten through twelfth-grade, a unique curriculum that allows students to explore the full scope of their own interests, abilities, and gifts.
Pranav developed a curiosity about the science behind dental hygiene, and designed a series of experiments with subjects from an Indian school he volunteers at each summer. He is now in his fourth year of study about the oral microbiome and low-cost techniques for improving oral health.
His sustained work and creativity have garnered him ever increasing state and national recognition. This year he was the winner of the 2017 Iowa BioGENEius Challenge at the 60th Iowa State Science and Technology Fair 2017. He also won a paid trip to attend the International BioGENEius Challenge at the BIO International Convention in June in San Diego, competing against 17 top BioGENEius students from U.S., Canada, and Germany.
Pranav was also awarded the Grand Honorable Mention at the State Science and Technology Fair 2017 and was a finalist at the Eastern Iowa Science and Engineering Fair (EISEF) 2017.
He is looking forward to his fourth paid trip to INTEL International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles in May. The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF) is the world's largest international pre-college science competition.
