Congratulations to Jin U Bak (class of 2010) on his selection to participate in New York University Abu Dhabi’s first candidate weekend at Abu Dhabi. Jin U ‘s research paper on “The most effective design of a robot to withstand the weather conditions in UAE” was selected among thousands of papers submitted by students from 750 select schools across the globe. NYU AD’s candidate weekend is an opportunity for students meet with faculty and prospective students, attend classes and spend time with New York University President John Sexton, NYU Abu Dhabi Vice Chancellor Alfred H Bloom, and members of faculty and staff. NYU AD will sponsor Jin U’s trip to Abu Dhabi.

Congratulations also go to Alan Alphonse and Min-Gyu Lee who stood first in the Junior High South Zone Division of the Indian Robot Olympiad 2009 at Bangalore. Alan and Min-Gyu have qualified to participate in the World Robot Olympiad 2009 to be held in South Korea in November.
