Portola Valley's Cameron Jones makes it to semifinals in national science competition

 

Cameron Jones, the Portola Valley science fair whiz who graduated from Corte Madera School last June has done it again by being named a semi-finalist in a national middle school science fair competition, one of 300 students in the country to do so.

In early September, Cameron will find out if he has been named a finalist in the competion, Broadcom MASTERS.

Cameron's project last year, which won a first place in the state science fair, involves infusing fine carbon powder into rubber bands so they can be used to measure biometrics (such as heartbeats or breathing).

Cameron will be going to Harker School in San Jose this fall, partially because, he says, the school supports its students in science fairs.

The Almanac ran a story on Cameron in June.
