South Middle Student to Present Research at National STEM Education Conference

Anant Gupta, an eighth grader at South Middle School, has been selected to present his science research paper at the 2021 Integrated STEM Education Conference (ISEC) on March 13.

Anant’s paper is titled, “Application for Individualized Learning Using Artificial Intelligence.” He developed the paper as a student in Brian Pernice’s Science Research class at South Middle.

“I thought about building a tool to impart knowledge based on the skill level of each student,” explains Anant. “I want to make an application (app) powered by artificial intelligence that will closely monitor the student’s past performance and response time and will provide him/her with personalized content.”

The annual ISEC conference is known for featuring cutting-edge research and experiences with integrated approaches to the study of science, math, and technology through experiences and activities based in engineering and other design disciplines. The national audience includes educators, researchers, administrators, students, and parents.
