  • Congratulations to the Cherry Creek Math team! After six rounds of the Colorado Math League competition, the Bruins have unofficially won the league. CCHS students with perfect scores in round 6 were Austen Mazenko and Rahul Thomas. The other high scores went to Derwin Wu, Brandon Dong, Siddarth Ijju and Akshunna Vaishnav. The results of the UNC math competition from January 20th are in and several CCHS students finished in the top 25: Sarah Gao, Michael Hu, Derwin Wu, Siddarth Ijju, and finishing third was Rahul Thomas, and finishing first was Austen Mazenko. Austen will be presenting a topic to the honored guests and families at the award ceremony at UNC on April 8. Congratulations all!
  • Creek Senior, Isani Singh, finished 3rd in the Regeneron National Young Scientist Search and received $150,000 for her work towards determining that women with Turner Syndrome (TS), a genetic abnormality in which the second sex chromosome is missing, do have some cells with two X chromosomes. Knowing that most embryos lacking the second X do not survive, Isani adapted a laboratory protocol to search for and find these normal cells in TS embryos. She also identified genes that are under expressed in TS, a finding that may help physicians and patients better prepare for the variable medical complications of TS.

  • 2017-2018 Denver Science Fair Awards was held on February 18th, 2018. This is the 55th year of science fair. Congratulations to all of our award winners. Click Denver_Science_Fair_Awards_2018_Final for a full list.
